How would I update a kernel


I'm currently using Xubuntu 8.10 which has the newer 2.6.27 kernel. I'd like to try U-lite which has the previous kernel. Can I download the newer kernel as a .deb file and install it into U-lite? Thanks.

I would ask this question to the U-lite forum.

Meanwhile I would not try, not knowing if the kernel shipped with U-lite is patched and/or is fully compatible with Ubuntu's.
