Boot options after update

Hello everyone.

Currently I'm using Fedora 11 and being my first real Linux experience, I'm very satisfied with it...

Anyway, I'm writing this because yesterday, my system prompted to me to make some updates, I accepted and everything went fine, my system runs smooth and all is well... My only question is that after the update I'm getting an extra Fedora boot option in my GRUB menu... Is this normal?

Yes it is. The update included a new kernel. If you find the new kernel causes problems you can select the previous kernel during boot.

Awesome Barf, thanks for the help... The only problem so far is that I can't run VirtualBox with the new kernel, other than that, works like a charm!

To add to that ...

Over time additional kernels will become available. If you wish you can remove the old ones although I advise you keep at least 1 old kernel (in addition to the newest, latest, greatest) in case you have problems.
