I have a fairly newbie question: I want to install the kernel upgrade, so I'll 
do yum update and enter y at the [y/N] prompt. Should I then reboot into the 
new kernel, and then do a yum install nvidia-graphics-kmdl-2.4.22-1.2179.nptl 
and then do yum install nvidia-graphics? 

I'm assuming that I would need to uncomment the related atrpms lines found in 
artoo's yum.conf.

(I'm asking because with the livna driver, there was the instruction 
recommending that the driver be installed *prior* to booting in the new 
kernel.)

Thanks,
Clint
