There's somethings I'll like to know about the kernel.

1.- Wich one i'm using (Im using Linux Mandrake 9.0)
How i know wich kernel im using.

2.- How I can compile my kernel, i read some about it,
I have to compile often or when, and how can i do it.

3.- How can i upgrade my kernel, where i get the latest
one for Mandrake 9.0, and how can i install it.

Thanks,
Dexter

Mandrake probably distributes new kernels as rpm packages. Check the Mandrake web site to find out where to get the latest kernel and how to install it.
