Which is what I'm doing, using yum to upgrade 5 or 6 packages at a 
time.  One thing its refusing to do is to update iptables.  This box 
has always had a custom kernel on it, currently running a pretty old 
2.4.23 something or other with Con Kovolas 'ck6' patchset applied.  
I'm not alergic to building a newer kernel, but how do I go about 
telling yum that the kernel installed is compatible, or even better, 
than the one its looking for?

Thanks for all the replies, I appreciate them.

Cheers, Gene
