Thumbs up Problem with Kernel 2.6


Hi people:

I have Mandrake 10 RC1 installed on my computer, I have both kernels, 2.6
and 2.4. But when I do a uname -a, I get a message like this:

Linux linxus6.uwaterloo.ca 2.4.25-0.pre7.3mdk #1 jeu fv 5 16:29:56 CET
2004 i686 unknown unknown GNU/Linux

This means I only have a kernel 2.4 running. How can I switch my kernel
to 2.6? Since I have to use it for cifs mounting. Thank you.

I don't know a lot about mandrake, but you will likly need to setup a bootloader such as lilo or grub (or change the config of a existing one) to boot the new kernel.
