Upgading from kernel-2.2 to 2.6


Is it correct , that all you have to do to upgrade from kernel-2.2 2.4 to kernel-2.6.9 is just upgade using apt-get.
What comammd do you use to update by network ?
I'm new to Debian.

I think it works with Sarge too, but i'm not sure. I installed the kernel-image2.6.8 which was the latest at the time in the Debian repositories at the time, on Sarge.

read the sticky Debian Configuration Post-Install, page 5, i think, it explains the whole process.

FWIW, i just installed the 2.6.9 kernel-image, it took less than 10 minutes, no questions asked, and updated Grub automatically, all i had to do was reboot.
