I seem to recall someone saying that updating the kernel on one OS could
mess around with the other files in /boot, knobbling another OS, when
they all had their kernels in /boot.

Though I could only imagine that happening if one OS update was going to
delete a kernel with the exact same filename as one being used with
another OS.

(This computer runs FC7, my others run FC4, FC5 & FC6, in case that's
 important to the thread.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
