..Or, on second thought, would those same rpm's work for me in Mandriva? Perhaps? Hmmm
Have you tried using the package manager (RPMDrake) to find it? If so, have you set up your system to search the additional repositories using http://www.easyurpmi.com
? I have found that after checking all the options there, and running them in the konsole, I can find just about anything through the package manager.
The Suse RPM could very likely work, but I certainly don't recommend it unless you don't mind reinstalling. With Mandriva, the package manager is always the best way to install anything. If you can't find what you are looking for there then try googling for it at http://www.google.com/linux
and look for Mandrake specific RPMS.
You can use other distro specific RPMS for installing applications, but for something as important as updating the kernel I would stick with Mandrake packages just to be safe.
Hope that helps!
