I open the terminal, logged in as root, typed "chmod
+w /etc/grub.conf" and it still gives me a permission
denied message. I did open grub.conf with vi, though.
"Default=1" Before I go ahead and change anything, I
want to be absolutely sure I'm doing the right thing.
If I set the default to 0, will it boot with kernel
2.6.8 by default (instead of 2.6.5 being the default)?
Or do I need to set the default to something else to
get 2.6.8 to be the default kernel?
