    Hi

    On another topic George told me that i can install using yum-update new updates and new kernels without restarting the server.....

    Now i want to ask if i install 4-5 kernels without restart if i will get any problems and my second question is if i restart after installing so many kernels the system will boot with the newest kernel from the 4-5 without any problems?

    Thanks
