Funny you say that.  I'm using FC5 x86-64 with the 2.6.17-2174 kernel.
Added a VFD to my box today, so I figured I'd patch and update myth to
the latest SVN.  Somewhere in there, my / and /boot filesystems got
trashed.  Good thing I do weekly backups of the filesystems and daily DB
backups. ;)

So yeah - there was an update to 2.6.17-2187.  Now that my box is up and
running again, I somehow don't feel like trying that kernel again... :)
