Some Silly Kernel Patching Questions

Can I patch my 2.4.22 to 2.4.25 by applying the 3 patches in a row
then "mv linux-2.4.22 linux-2.4.25"?

Thanks for your help but that doesn't tell me if I can do multiple patches at the same time. Is this possible, to save me compiling 3 kernels?

Of course that's possible... But be careful that the patch are correctly applied (no .rej files created).
