RE[3]: Things to consider

Updating the kernel doesn't break anything. Upgrading the kernel (going from 2.15 to 2.16 - equivalent to going from win2k to winxp) can break something, but usually things will work quite fine.

I don't know what kind of trouble you have had, but either you have chosen a bad distribution or you have no clue about configuring your PC. (Perhaps a combination since you are mentioning Redhat.)
