On my Fedora box, I decided to let the update agent download and install the latest kernel. Normally it will install the bzImage and alter grub so I can boot from the new kernel...... but no such luck this time. The update agent tells me that there is a newer version of the kernel on the system (2.6.10-1.766) and that i should reboot to test it... but grub has not been updated and I cannot see the bzImage in /boot/. Whats going on?! Will I have to install it manually?

Any ideas?

Right ok. Last night I successfully managed to compile the 2.6.10 kernel, and create the bzImage. Im having issues with the initrd image now. Basically I need to open up my initrd and bung in my newly compiled modules, BUT im having problems with physically mounting the image. The usual command is mount -o loop /boot/initrd2.x.x.img /mnt/initrd yes? Well, this dont work. It wants me to specify the fs type. Logically, as the image is a compressed ext2 fs -t ext2 should work, but doesnt, nor does -t cpio. Any ideas? Im tearing my hair out trying to work out why i cant mount it!!!
