Hi Ruud

If you installed  kernel 2.4.19 successfully by doing a rpm -ivh you

something went  wrong. If it's there you need to edit /boot/grub/grub.conf 

there is a line that looks like:


you should change this line to


The only thing that you are doing is making  2.4.19 to be your default 
boot kernel.

I am using the same kernel on a laptop.

Please make sure you do an rpm -ivh when you are updating kernels, 
otherwise you will erase the original kernel. Don't do rpm -Uvh.
