39.3. Downloading the Upgraded Kernel

There are several ways to determine if there is an updated kernel available for the system.

If Red Hat Network was used to download and install the updated kernel, following the instructions in Section 39.5 Verifying the Initial RAM Disk Image and Section 39.6 Verifying the Boot Loader, except do not change the kernel to boot by default because Red Hat Network automatically changes the default kernel to the latest version. To install the kernel manually, continue to Section 39.4 Performing the Upgrade.
