Description Sean Dilda 2004-10-25 15:48:18 EDT
I have a RHEL3u3 system using grub that had two kernels installed. 
The first in the grub.conf was an smp kernel, the second was a up
kernel.  The default line in grub.conf said 'default=0'.

I ran 'rpm -e kernel-smp' which removed the first kernel in the
grub.conf.  Afterwards, the smp entry was gone from grub.conf, but the
default line read 'default=1', which doesn't actually exist.
