well, this symlink seems to be pointing to wrong kernel.  or was that a
typo?  (2.4.7 should be 2.4.9 if you installed that package).

I would make sure that your silo package is also up to date.  and what
does your /etc/silo.conf look like?

what does "wont reboot" mean?  what is the error...how far does it get?

also, are you on a sun4u arhictecture machine?  if you are on a 32bit
machine, you should stick to the 2.2 kernel for now.
