As to the glitch you mentioned later: Please don't forget that the
code, or parts of it, that you have on your machine now is sort of
highly beta: The kernel folks say something like this themselves. You
can read it via the links on top of <http://www.kernel.org/>, to the
left of the links that lead to the kernel sources, patches etc. ...

E.g. 2.6.12-rc2 is a prepatch, and the explanation for what this is
reads like this on

"Prepatches may be poorly tested, and may in fact not work at all. Use
on your own risk; if you use one and run into a problem please see
Reporting Linux Kernel Bugs on the front page.

Prepatches with -rc in the name are considered release candidates and
may become full versions. It is therefore particularly important that
those get tested."

As mentioned above: More information on the various patches is
available on the kernel.org page ..
