I now have two additional kernels
Based on your suggestion to maintain at least two kernels at a time, I left everything in tact.
Problem now is after a couple of upgrades, I have had two more kernels added to my GRUB/boot listing making it a total of about 10 listings.
You mentioned something about synaptics download manager which I could find my way to locate it. I rather, though found under System->Administration->Synaptic Package Manager. From there I did not know what to do next.
Being new, I would be grateful if you could direct me where to go from there.
Another issue is that my Windows Vista (loader) has been interchanged with the related Recovery Environment (loader). This means if I want to log in to Windows and scroll down to Vista (loader), I will be invoking reovery process instead of loading Windows. How could this also be changed?
Thanks and regards,
