Explanations of the kernel can be found here (the Kernel homepage). Also read RUTE (check my signature for the link).

I am not that fortunate. let's leave the that behind for a while.
Can you answer my original question ?

1.
I have installed fedora core2, I can go to the shell (bash) but, what is that mithical kernel thing ? how do I get there ?

2.
I am wondering that I have a 500MB hard with a 486 I would like to install (if possible) something like dos shell ( here I think it is linux kernel , boh!!!!)

As fas as I know rute online uses html.gz ...
maybe Windows browsers can't handle that
mime-type?


Cheers,
Tink

I'm in Mozilla on Mandy 10 - no problems at all. Also have viewed it in Knoppix and in WinXP (with Mozilla).

What exactly do you want to do with the kernel?

If you are on Fedora, Up2Date/Yum/Apt4RPM will do all that for you
