[vox-tech] Oh my God! What have I done to my poor Linux box?!!?

Armed with a CompUSA gift certificate that a friend of mine gave me for my 
birthday, I went today and picked up RH7.2 to upgrade my system, something 
I've been meaning to do for awhile.

So I started the upgrade process, and everything appeared to go

That's it.  Nothing.  Not even a friendly "Kernel panic!" message, which
