I, too, had trouble with 7.2 initially. But the problems disappeared when
I updated the 7.2 kernel to 2.4.9-13, available from Red Hat as an
update to 7.2.
up2date --force -u kernel
This updates /etc/grub.conf to include 2.4.9-13, but leaves the
in that file. I had to changed it to
to make grub boot to 2.4.9-13 by default.
