I just installed FC5 a couple of days ago on my wife's computer (clean
install from FC3).  Today I updated the kernel to 2.6.16-1.2107_FC5.i686

original kernel, it's just fine.  Any ideas?  Thanks in advance.

2.6.16-1.2107_FC5 seems to have broken a lot of stuff for people
(graphical boot, networking for some, CUPS/printing for me, et al.)

Reverting to version 2.6.16-1.2069_FC5 is probably the least hassle-free
way to resolve these at the moment.

Thank you! Is there and easy way to get the original kernel to boot instead of defaulting to the new one?

It's all in "info grub" if you can figure any of that gibberish out.
(When is SOMEBODY going to make that trash readable, anyway.)

I just go in to /boot/grub/grub.conf and make what appear to be some
obvious edits.
