kernal upgrades?


not sure if this is the right forum for this so mobs fill free to move it were it belongs.

putting it under software as i dont really know what else to call the kernal.

i am running RH9 for my apache server at the house. as most of you are aware RH is dropping 100% support for their desktop/workstation solutions as of the 30th of Apr. '04.

as new kernals are released will i be able to compile a new kernal for my RH system without destroying things?

ill worry about the how to and how to recover later, just thinking ahead for upgrades down the line.

You can always get the latest kernel and compile it from www.kernel.org , it just won't be specifically coded for a Redhat system, more nuetral for any distro, etc.

Have you considered switching to Fedora? It is supposed to be quite similar to and sponsored by Red Hat, but aimed more at home users than businesses. I have never tried it though, it's just a suggestion.

yeah tried FDC1, but it did not load drivers for my NIC. its a laptop.. someday i am sure ill upgrade to the FD line, but i have my server up, and going live soon. its up and around, but no DNS pointing to it.

good to know that ill be able to continue to upgrade the kernal until im ready to replace the OS with an other distro.

thanks you 2.
