Update FC4 kernel to 2.6.17 or higher.

I need to install FC4 (yes, I know it's behind the curve) on an HP ML350 server. The problem is, the kernel version, 2.6.11, doesn't have up to date cciss raid controler drivers. I need or higher.

Thus, I have to install the system on an IDE HD, but I need the data on the HW RAID.

Can anyone give me a procedure for updating the kernel after I get it installed? Will yum update kernel do it?

yum update will update the kernel RPMs.

I would also consider an option of going with a newer kernel from the beginning (such as Fedora 5, CentOS 5, etc) and then downgrading the packages you need FC4 for as an option. Depending on your reasons for sticking with FC4 this may be a better solution than having your boot partition on a non-RAID hdd.

FC4 kernel is only updated to 2.6.17-1.2142.  He'll definitely need a later core -> 5 or 6 (although 7 is now out).
