i eneded up formatting the machine, as i need to get it up and runnign again , ive left this one as fedora core 4 and nto updated seems to be fine.

 

the results yum list installed grep kernel showed fedora core 4 smp and devel

 

car /etc/release shows fedora core 5 bordeux

 

 

i had tried before formatting upgrading to fedora 6 but got the same results with the kernel staying the same
