That worked.  I was at least able to update the kernel.  Now there's a
problem installing the latest nVidia video drivers.

The kernel was compiled with GCC 4.1 apparently, and the drivers require
4.2, which I have installed.  However, the installation fails due to the
kernel having been compiled with 4.1.

I tried export CC=gcc-4.2, but that didn't fix the problem.  What other
tricks can I try to get these video drivers installed?  (Going through
City of Heroes withdrawls here because of this...)  :)
