Thanks for the reply Paul.

Everything is as it should be as I removed the previous kernel and
only have two items in grub.conf.  Just checked the versions of grub
and it looks like F9 is 0.97-33 whereas F10 is 0.97-38 (not sure what
else it could be).

Also, if I use savedefault in the grub file itself I get an error 27
when the entry tries to run when booting.
