SuSE 9.0 Kernel Upgrade by RPMs


I want to upgrade the kernel from 2.4.19 to 2.6.10-14, I have found the website with the RPM files. But which ones do I need to down load?

There are the following files:
kernel-bigsmp-2.6.5-10.14.i586.rpm 02-May-2004 22:37 20.5M
kernel-bigsmp.i586.rpm 02-May-2004 22:37 20.5M
kernel-default-2.6.5-10.14.i586.rpm 02-May-2004 22:12 20.2M
kernel-default.i586.rpm 02-May-2004 22:12 20.2M
kernel-smp-2.6.5-10.14.i586.rpm 02-May-2004 22:25 20.4M
kernel-smp.i586.rpm 02-May-2004 22:25 20.4M
kernel-source-2.6.5-10.14.i586.rpm 02-May-2004 22:52 37.0M
kernel-source-2.6.5-10.14.src.rpm 02-May-2004 22:52 38.0M
kernel-source.i586.rpm 02-May-2004 22:52 37.0M
kernel-source.src.rpm 02-May-2004 22:52 38.0M
kernel-um-2.6.5-10.14.i586.rpm 02-May-2004 22:48 4.1M
kernel-um.i586.rpm 02-May-2004 22:48 4.1M

Can anyone point me in the right direction.

Thanks

Install SuSE 9.1 pro would be better, but I don't have it and I can't find a download site for it.

Not so easy, my problem is that 9.0 (2.4.19 kernel) will not support my bluetooth equipment so I cannot go online to get updates. I am hoping that the newer kernel 2.6.10 has better bluetooth support.
