Hello everyone first post in these forums and very green to Linux. Anyway this is the problem that I'm having updated my fedora core 4 to the lasted kernel with yum, and now my nic card is not working. I have read some where that the latest kernel is having problem with some nic cards. I just want to know how to go back to the previous kernel that I had on my rig. In terminal what do a type to see my version I have right know and what do I type to go back to the previous version that I had. Thanks in advance for any input on this .

That was a fast response thxs Jim now I'm back on the net. I also posted another question on a different linux forum about a file that I'm missing, and its not allowing fluxbox to install as a desktop. When I run the rpm file for fluxbox it gives me the error unlocatable package liblmilib2.so.1. I did a search on the file with no luck.
