Is he saying he was using GRUB from RHEL 5 that loads from a RHEL 5
root/usr to boot a RHEL 4 kernel/initrd in another partition and it

That sounds more like an issue with GRUB configuration than a failure of
RHEL 5 v. 4 GRUB.  I.e., did he change the booting reference for RHEL 4
to the correct boot/root slice (partition)?  And not leave it the same
for RHEL 5?

You already know Red Hat as the entity dedicated to 100%
no-IP-strings-attached, community software development.
But do you know where CIOs rate Red Hat versus other
software and services firms for their own, direct needs? 
It's no comparison:  http://www.redhat.com/promo/vendor/
