Hi again,
    I found something really cool!  I found an RPM package of the 2.4
test kernel.  But, I have a question on how to install it.

I have 2.2.16-4.lfs, and installed the RPM using the following:

rpm -ivh --force kernel-2.2.16-4.lfs.i386.rpm

I also want to have the test 2.4 kernel on the same drive, so I can boot
back and forth, but when I issued that command for 2.2.16, it deleted my
old folder called: 2.2.14-5.0.

What command do I issue with RPM (4.0 by the way), without erasing my
2.2.16 directory?

I thought rpm -ivh <file>
and then write that in the lilo.conf with your favorite text editor.
(mine is pico ;-))

Any suggestions, comments and help would be GREATLY appriciated.
