I'm running FC1 aswell, and this is my kernel version.
Code:
andrew@zeus incoming$ uname -sr
Linux 2.4.22-1.2129.nptl
That's what you're running, I assume?

I didn't have any problems after upgrading to it, except a small problem with WINE. What problems are you experiencing?

As for your 2nd question, I believe all the security fixes in the lastest 2.4 kernel were backported to the RedHat/FC kernel, so upgrading to improve security isn't nescessary. You can upgrade if you want, but it's not absolutely nescessary.

it is Linux 2.4.22-1.2149.nptl
and what does not work is the adsl connection that i had some problems setting it up
so actually what i am doing now is despite that i have upgraded i still use Linux 2.4.22-1.2115.nptl

i ask about newer 2.6 kernels 'cos someone told me that by upgrading to the 2.6 kernel he fixed his sound problem that i also have ...

A 2.6 kernel would probably be worth the upgrade, as long as all your hardware supports it. I assumed you were talking about a newer 2.4 kernel, but a 2.6 kernel would definitely be worth the upgrade if you're willing to go through the hassle of setting one up.

2.6 Kernel

The 2.6 Kernel is a fine upgrade, but it is not pain free. I have upgraded 3 systems, and on each there is some funny business with Kudzu and Network cards (3com and Intel) as well as sound card issues (ESS-Maestro, C-Media, and SB-Live!). I am having to fidget quite a bit with some of the settings to get it wokring smoothly.
