I ended up just running up2date on Fedora Core 2 and it gave me an options to upgrade my kernel to a new kernel version that was available and then made me reboot. So, now I guess that new kernel should be supported with nVidia's latest drivers, right?

I will be doing this all day Thursday and I hope I don't mess this up.

Thanks for any more info I can use.

No, the new kernel does not support nvidia drivers... we have to wait until nvidia supports 4kstacks...

so unless I complie a new kernel (which is way beyond anything I can do) or go back to ATI, I will not be able to play games?

I noticed that this is for i686..I thought that was for 64 bit versions of linux. I think I am using a 32 i386 or something like that..does this matter or am I just really confused?

ok, so I am looking at the link and I am assuming that I should download the 1st link 2.6.6-1.427 -

I see that it is a zip. I downloaded this file to /home/carlwill

What is the command to install this?

First double click to unzip it...

then, open up a terminal and type su -
enter your password for root

then rpm -ivh kernel-(then just hit tab to have it autocomplete)

If I do install this, I can always go back to a 4 k stack kernel if Nvidia drviers support 4 k stack, right?

Or is it better to just stick with this kernel for future and on...

Just not really sure what kind of kernel I am upgrading to and not sure if this will handicap me later once fedora kernels tend to become better supported.

PS - are you at work too?
