I did a clean Mint v6 installation about a week ago (finally getting rid of XP..... YAY!) and everything is going perfectly!
However, I just realized that during one of the updates, a new kernel was downloaded but it isn't in use. In /boot, I can see both 2.6.27-7 and 2.6.27-9.
My Grub menu only has an entry for 2.6.27-7. Is there a reason why the menu wasn't updated to include 2.6.27-9?
....and would it hurt anything to manually add it?
