While upgrading from RH 80 to Fedora Core 1 via yum, I noticed that
yum does not list all the kernels I have installed.

[root at taltos root]# yum list kernel*

[root at taltos root]# pre kernel
[root at taltos root]#

Where "pre" is a wrapper for "rpm -qa | grep" and some other goodies.

There was nothing in the directory where I rand this that would expand
the "kernel*".

I'm not on this list, so please CC any replies to me.
