That would be sweet. FYI, when yum updated the kernel, there was no

FYI Ric: I'm currently running:
$ uname -r
2.6.17-1.2187_FC5smp
And the update for the NVIDIA module has been installed in the past days
(earlier in this week as I recall) - I don't have big issues with running the
NV driver for a few days, so I just live with the situation. If I were doing
serious video editing on this machine, I'd be singing a different tune, and
that's coming...

Of course, there's nothing that requires you to start *using* a kernel update immediately when it's installed. The previous kernel is not deleted, so you can select it from GRUB by hand until the driver update comes out. Alternatively, you can set UPDATEDEFAULT=no in /etc/sysconfig/kernel. Then installing a new kernel won't make it the default in GRUB. You can reboot normally and get the old kernel until the driver is released, then update /etc/grub.conf yourself.
