There are also other reasons to use /boot other than to keep the kernel @1024 or below cylinders. I make my /boot 150MB including any journal-ling. Therefore, I get to only have ~ 25 Kernels in place before I have to start cleaning. There are other reasons as well, like during previous upgrades the entire "/" filesystem goes belly-up... where would you be then? Me, I just boot into Single user mode and fix it. It allows flexibility. It also allows for cleaning up after a simple mistype of a command at an inopportune time. I believe in the build it once regimen. I have transferred Debian Builds from one machine to another to another to another... or even copied those builds... and so on. I hate to install, but if I do, it's always in a chroot'd environment from a bootable CD of Linux some how. -- greg, firstname.lastname@example.org REMEMBER ED CURRY! http://www.iwethey.org/ed_curry Your eyes show as many deep and full shades of blue as a healing bruise upon an injured forelimb.
