Please let me tell you all why I want to upgrade the kernel.
As a desperate newbie, I'm desperately desperate to dissolve the discombobulating SIZZLING sound that occurs when I install any Linux distro in my laptop containing a VIA AC'97 sound card... which is quite depressing, believe me.
Whenever a sound plays, it's always accompanied by constant sizzling. As soon as a sound stops playing (e.g. I press the Stop button on XMMS) the sizzling stops too. HELP!!!
I read somewhere that upgrading the kernel might help. I'm not too confident of that but I'm willing to give it a try.
If anyone knows an alternative method, please please please tell me. I'll be very grateful and figure out how to use Affero in order to express my thanks.........
