Could someone give me step-by-step directions for upgrading Linux from RH5.0 to RH5.1?  The last time I did an upgrade, I got all kinds of warnings about unresolved symbols.

The unresolved symbols were when it was trying to load modules.
I'm assuming you already know how to do the upgrade, so go ahead
and do that part again.  

Then when you're done, go into /lib/modules and do:
ln -s 2.0.34 preferred

Also, do:  /sbin/depmod -a 2.0.34
This will create the /lib/modules/2.0.34/modules.dep file
which will tell kerneld which modules to load at boot time.

What does the link do?

Does the /sbin/depmod command change just the file you listed?
I thought (according to my documentation) the
/etc/rc.d/boot.local (if I recall right) was used at boot time
to load modules.

Thanks.

Why doesn't make module_install do the above?  Or, does it?
