    i’ve edited sources.list, updated the packages, but what else is necessary for updating to 2.4? i.e. downloading and upgrading kernel? how?

    The easy way is to make sure you have kernel package stuff install, then get the source for the 2.4.x kernel either with apt-get or from ftp.kernel.org (or some such). Untar the kernel file, run make menuconfig to configure the kernel, you may not really need to do that though…

    After that, run make-kpkg clean; make-kpkg –revision=my01 kernel-image. This will create a deb for you to install, then just dpkg -i kernel-image….i386.deb

    goto www.linuxhq.com or ftp.kernel.org and download linux-2.4.2.gz, untar the source into where ever (maybe /usr/src, but be careful if ./linux/ is already there), cd into the directory.

    read the INSTALL file (or some such)

    run: make menuconfig , turn on experimental features (its good to know), and it helps to see the help notes for each option.

    note DONT tag the ext2 or the IDE drivers as modules, or the kernel wont boot. (* sheepish grin)

    do the make dep, make bzImage, make modules and make modules_install etc (read about it in INSTALL)

    dont over write the old bzImage (probably in /boot/bzImage or /boot/vmlinuz), rather copy the bzImage (in /arch/i386/boot/) to /boot/bzImagenew or something and add that image to your /etclilo.conf or /boot/grub/menu.lst file(s), this is because is something does go wrong (something small probably will) you can boot the old image, no wuzzas!!

    ps : its not that hard at all really, give it a go

    Is it just me, or does that picture of the potato look real tasty?

    I should have some lunch I think!

    Worked great for me too!, I now have a nice 2.4.2 kernel on potato. I didn’t even have to change my firewall script. I simply used the ipchains compatibility module and everything is running smoothly :))
