Re: Newbie Question

The best option would be to re-install the whole system with the 2.4.18 kernel. This can be done in woody (3.0r1) by typing bf24 on the first screen of the install.
Hope this helps.

Okay, after loading a new machine with Debian 3.0r1, I've found that I need to install a
newer kernel. Without the kernel, debian won't recognize my NIC or my display
adapter. So, I don't have internet access on that computer.
I'd like to download all the necessary files to upgrade the kernel from 2.2.x to a 2.4.x
kernel. But, I don't know which files to download, and I have no idea how to upgrade
the kernel the 'Debian Way'
Once I have the files,(once I find out which files I'll need) I'll download them to this
machine, and burn them to a CD. Then I'll copy them to the new machine.

I'm not new to linux/unix, just new to Debian. And I don't understand the package
system very well, or doing things the Debian Way.
