    if i look at the choices from the boot menu i see this:

    Code:
    [root@myserver grub]# cat /boot/grub/grub.conf
    serial --unit 0 --speed 57600
    terminal serial console --timeout=5
    
    default=0
    timeout=10
    
    title linux with serial console
            root (hd0,0)
            kernel /boot/vmlinuz ro root=/dev/sda3 console=ttyS0,57600 console=tty1
    
    title linux
            root (hd0,0)
            kernel /boot/vmlinuz ro root=/dev/sda3 console=tty1 console=ttyS0,57600
    
    title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-8)
            root (hd0,0)
            kernel /boot/vmlinuz.old ro root=/dev/sda3
    
    [root@myserver grub]#
    
    notice title of the vmlinuz.old kernel: "Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-8)"


    but then if i go to the /boot dir the /boot/vmlinuz and /boot/vmlinuz.old dont match the list.

    Code:
    [root@myserver boot]# ls -la /boot
    total 10232
    lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root      32 May 15  2006 vmlinuz -> /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16-rc6-060427a
    -rw-r--r--   1 root root 1598219 Mar 28  2006 vmlinuz-2.6.16-1.2069_FC4
    -rw-r--r--   1 root root 2005771 Apr 27  2006 vmlinuz-2.6.16-rc6-060427a
    -rw-r--r--   1 root root 1803676 Jul 11  2006 vmlinuz-2.6.17-1.2142_FC4
    lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root      31 May 15  2006 vmlinuz.old -> /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16-1.2069_FC4


    see the versions are different.
    then look at the live kernel:

    Code:
    [root@myserver boot]# cat /proc/version
    Linux version 2.6.16-rc6-060427a (root@buildd-i386) (gcc version 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-13)) #1 SMP Thu Apr 27 10:38:19 CEST 2006
    [root@myserver boot]#
    
    it says it's Debian 1:3.3.5-13. so my question is: is this a redhat box or a debian box? where did this running kernel come from? This is running on 1and1. Is this perhaps the kernel used for recovery/reboot/reimaging from their control panel? Or is this box just whacked?

    Any info appreciated

    Hey,

    I'm also a 1 and 1 user, how did you install grub ? Normally 1 and 1 uses lilo, I would love to use grub, can you tell me how you did it ?

    Thanks,

    PS: Sorry but I dont know anything about kernel compiling and gcc, but I'm know for a fact that 1 and 1 admins are Debian geeks ...

    I didnt install it actually. It was there.
    I also packed up my **** and got away from one and one. they are horrendous. I don't think I've ever experienced such awful customer service as I did with them. I'm on Media Temple now.

    Hey,

    Thanks for replying, yeah ... they are bad, unfortunally I'm tied to a contract and lots of domains with them so I'm stuck for a while.

    Anyways, thanks again.
