There are a great many guides to kernel compiling on internet; perhaps a Google search would better serve your purpose.

Hi, Sarah -

Compiling and installing a kernel isn't difficult ...
... but if you're not familiar with Linux, it isn't necessarily going to be easy.

Q: What is the actual problem, that you feel you need a new kernel for?

Perhaps there's an easier solution.

Please let us know .. PSM

In future, please use thread titles that describe your question/problem, as you're told to when you post a thread. In addition, please don't mark your threads as urgent. This is a volunteer site and no question is more urgent than any other. If you need urgent help, then pay for support from somewhere..

I do agree with Nylex as well

But if you want to compile your kernel download the kernel source either by your distro or http://www.kernel.org Please note that your distro may have customized the code for your distro so the source from your distro may be different then the one from kernel.org. But use google to find you some simple steps. Just take the config file from your /boot and copy it to your linux source as .config. then follow steps provided by google search.

urgent just for *YOU*, not for me nor anybody here. don't demand "urgent" attention, unless you want to get ignored, or blamed.

there are a lot of guides for kernel compilation, like this one. Most major distros have their own ways to do kernel compiling too, do some research.
