HELP HELP HELP

Hi again:  Just tested my first test and proceeded to test
and install a second time.  This time I let the server run
the update after registering with Novell.  However, upon
reboot the server was dorked as it could not read my /usr
and /var partitions (fstab was bad).

Now here is what changed between my first the second build:

I added a separate partition for /usr, that is all.

I could really use a hand here.  If I can't trust the update
mechanism ......

Chris.

I never update during the install. Always after. Are you using OES 2
Sp2 ?

Yes oes 2a.  I think the issue is a failed kernel update,
possibly a grub error.  I did notice the kernel version sis
not change after the reboot - error.  On my first test
install the install and update resulted in a change in the
kernel version in grub.
