Description of problem:
after running up2date and selecting to update kernel to 2.6.7 from
2.6.5, it had properly installed new kernel, but GRUB booted still the
older. I had to manually select newer kernel upon each reboot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install FC2 from CDs
2. run up2date, select kernel to update
Actual Results: GRUB booted the older kernel, not the newer
Expected Results: up2date should deinstall older kernel or make GRUB
prefer the newer one

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
