kernel upgrade help!


i am new to linux and am trying to upgrade my kernel using apt-get and I get this error. What steps do I need to take to resolve it.

Thanks

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
kernel#2.6.5-1.356: PreDepends: fileutils
PreDepends: module-init-tools
PreDepends: initscripts (>= 5.83) but it is not going to be installed
PreDepends: mkinitrd (>= 3.5.5) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

I recomend using rpm instead. It's much easier. Just get the latest kernel.rpm and #rpm -i [latestkernel].rpm
You then might have to correct the kernel load path in grub.conf
reboot
