I think what I would try first, if I had the right kernel RPMs kicking around, would be to use rpm's --root. So from your FC4 system rpm -i --root /mnt/fc6 /path/to/kernel*.rpm In theory this should do the deed as if /mnt/fc6 was at /, at least, it should use the rpm database in /mnt/fc6/var/lib/rpm and does a chroot before running any scriptlets. Anyway I would try it first, not least to find out if it really can do the deed.
Thanks, Andy. I used the install dvd to upgrade my FC6 installation and it did the trick. Paul
