The replaced kernel starts the entire process over again (test.conf, rc.sysinit) and the original process by the first kernel is abandoned.

Riley: Its my recommendation to update your files to include the LBA48 kernel named as vmlinux.px in the init_framework.tgz file. It would appear to help minimize the mistakes and questions we are seeing.
The 2.4.18 kernel is running. The InstantCake image isn't LBA48 and thats my problem. If I have a LBA48 kernel running with the 3.1.1c monte will the mfs-backup of the image restore as LBA48? The process is quick to do the 4x RID solution.
