That used to work, and may still work with some distros.  Because
inside /boot there's a symlink from "vmlinuz" *to* the latest current
vmlinuz file.

I don't do Fedora 8 yet, but 7 doesn't have that symlink, and I don't
remember seeing it for a very long time, perhaps as far back as Red Hat
Linux 7.

Of course that's going to work, if done right.  But I suspect that you
haven't included the initrd line, and that your system needs something
from the initrd file to be able to work.

What do you mean by "applied the boot"?

[tim bigblack ~]$ uname -ipr i686 i386

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