I just installed my old dell Latitude c610 with Win xp and Fedora 7 and it worked fine!
The first time I booted my Fedora installation it wanted to upgrade my system with 111 "files" and I didn´t check them all (not at
all acctually). Everything still works fine but my grub.conf has been upgraded with an extra kernel option (is that the correct name?)
My grub.conf looks like this:
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,1)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
# initrd /initrd-version.img
title Fedora (2.6.21-1.3228.fc7)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.21-1.3228.fc7 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
title Fedora (2.6.21-1.3194.fc7)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
title Win XP
The system boots fine on both kernels but do i need two?
Can I delete the lines in grub.conf with the old "link" and then delete the acctual kernel image?
