This language is confusing. When an upgrade involves a new kernel, the default 
for FC4 is to boot the new kernel on reboot. The new kernel is written into 
the grub.conf file, and placed at the top of the list. 

If you intended to say something else, your choice of words is a little 
confusing. Or else, your configuration behaves completely differently than 
the multiple boxes I maintain. 

If the original poster isn't getting a new kernel offered on reboot after a 
kernel update, then I'd say there was a problem with his update...
