I've been upgrading since 9.0 (I started Linux with Linspire 4.5 --> Mandriva 9.2 --> SuSE 9.0)

I have never experienced a GRUB error when upgrading JUST the kernel. Furthermore, the Linux kernel 2.6.13 is not broken as 2.6.8 was a bit.
I have SuSe 10.0, but have stayed away from it, because of some remarks that others have made about it. Plus, the one time that I did try to install it, the entire system was inoperative. This was probably due to something that I did wrong, but I tend to stay with whatever works. I'm am curious about your statement about the 2.6.8 kernel being broken though, what was wrong?
