Introduction

I'm sometimes surprised to see people calling themselves linux geeks and don't even know how to install a new kernel on their OS. I decided to write this paper to show you how simple it is. Be very cautious when messing around with the kernel. Make or have a working bootable recovery floppy disk or CD-ROM. Don't forget to backup all of your files. I don't take any responsability of what you will do with this, it worked for me and will normally work for you but take care. This example uses a 2.4.19 kernel which is actually the lastest stable version on a x86 architecture. To know what kernel version you are actually running, type the command "uname -r". Download the lastest version at http://www.kernel.org. You need about 200 MB of free space to install the new kernel.
