From what you write, it seems that we then need to add something to say more firmly that users *really* should let this action be perfomed or be prepared to have serious trouble at next reboot. Something like: The new Linux kernel version provides different drivers for some PATA (IDE) controllers. The names of some hard disk, CD-ROM, and tape devices may change. . It is now recommended to identify disk devices in configuration files by label or UUID (unique identifier) rather than by device name, which will work with both old and new kernel versions. . If you choose to not update the system configuration automatically, you must update device IDs yourself before the next system reboot or the system may become unbootable.
