Question How do I change my 2.6 to 2.4 kernel ??


HELLO

>>>IŽm just trying to conect internet with Suse9.1 and after a lot
I wandered to use hsflinmodem, but now it says to be made for 2.4 and unable to run under 2.6 So HOW DO I CHANGE THIS (do I just uninstall it from YAST ? I donŽt want to dump my system!)

By the way.. all distros have troules with conexant micromodems
or thereŽs any that runs them the rigth way

Also if some one knows enough about this modem stuff here is the reference of my unsolved thread:

One day you'll need to compile a kernel. Just go to http://kernel.org/ and pick a kernel and download it. They all come with instructions.

You might want to wait for some suggestions from SuSE users first though. There might be precompiled kernels for your distro available.

Yes you can have more than one kernel. Keep the original one for a while untill you're sure everything works. I'm not sure how to setup Grub. There's probably a control centre or something with SuSE where you can add kernels. Google is probably the quickest way to find out

Just copy the kernel image to /boot directory and edit the menu.lst file in /boot/grub directory.
