Re: Yehaw!

cd to /usr/src
and run this:

wget http://metalab.unc.edu/pub/Linux/kernel/v2.3/linux-2.3.41.tar.gz

mv linux linux-OLD
mkdir linux-2.3.41
ln -s linux-2.3.41 linux
tar -zxvf linux-2.3.41.tar.gz
cd linux
make menuconfig
(configure the kernel to your liking)
make dep ; make clean ; make bzImage ; make modules ; make modules_install
cd arch/i386/boot
cp bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-2.3.41
cd /
rm vmlinuz
ln -s boot/vmlinuz-2.3.41 vmlinuz

and reboot. there may be a better way but thats how i do it.  check
/etc/lilo.conf to make sure the default kernel is /vmlinuz
