i'm looking through the kernel-image packages and i see packages for

kernel-image-2.4.x-386 or kernel-image-2.4.x-586 or do i have to muck
around with a kernel-source-2.4.x package?

thanks, macho

You can't use a kernel compiled for a better machine than you have, but yes, you can compile it for your machine from source. It's not that hard, but it'll take a while on a 486 :=). Anyway, you are safe with the 386 version, and the performance loss shouldn't be noticeable.
