i'll bet you can.... just make sure when you edit your boot loader to make sure the reference to the old kernel exists, in case something happens (basically don't uninstall the old kernel or remove references from /etc/lilo.conf (/etc/grub.conf?) and as a recommendation.. do an 'lspci' as root to help determine what hardware drivers to compile. it's not that hard really
