I've been tinkering with Linux for a while but still consider myself a newbie. I have a dual boot box with RH 9.0 and Win XP. Both OS's resided quite happily together and boot selection was through GRUB. Recently I decided to run RH's Up2date to bring all packages up to date. The process ran without problems, except that now the box boots directly to the GRUB command line, and from there I could not bring up either OS (tried  kernel /vmlinuz-xx.xx.xx-xx but get file not found error).  Reinstalling RH 9 brings me back to a dual boot system that works fine again (no impact on XP OS), but when I try Up2date again I have the same problem. Any help would be appreciated. ...B
