I guess I don't understand why to do the loopmount - is
that just to see what is there?
Thank you very much for the instructions in the previous
email. I copied the vmlinuz and initrd.img files to /boot
and modified grub.conf. I was thinking there had to be an
easy solution. I now feel very silly since I have modified
grub.conf to boot from a different kernel.
Thank you again for taking the time to read my email
and writing detailed/explicit instructions!
