>Ummm ok question I have kernel 2.4.20-8 can I go to kernel 2.4.20_20.9??
Unless you have reasons not to, you should probably go to 2.4.23: a serious security issue has been found in <=2.4.22.
>and do I need athlon kernel or what cuz im on an Athlon XP 1900+
If you want to compile it from source, the compiler itself should be able to optimize it for your system.
If you get a precompiled package then you may get a standard i586 build, but you'll have better performance with a athlon-specific build.
