Question Updating the Kernel unsing command line

Hello fellow linux users. I'm new to the linux world and could use some help. I'm currently running Kernel v. (2.4.18-24.8.0smp). And need to upgrade to a newier version using command line. When I goto up2date-config I get the following:
0. debug No
1. isatty Yes
2. depslist []
3. networkSetup Yes
4. retrieveOnly No
5. enableRollbacks No
6. pkgSkipList ['kernel*']
7. storageDir /var/spool/up2date
8. adminAddress ['root@localhost']
9. noBootLoader No
10. serverURL (I don't have enought posts to submit a url)
11. fileSkipList []
12. sslCACert /usr/share/rhn/RHNS-CA-CERT
13. noReplaceConfig Yes
14. useNoSSLForPackage No
15. systemIdPath /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid
16. enableProxyAuth No
17. retrieveSource No
18. versionOverride
19. headerFetchCount 10
20. networkRetries 5
21. enableProxy No
22. proxyPassword
23. noSSLServerURL (I don't have enought posts to submit a url)
24. keepAfterInstall No
25. proxyUser
26. removeSkipList ['kernel*']
27. useGPG Yes
28. gpgKeyRing /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date-keyring.gpg
29. httpProxy
30. headerCacheSize 40
31. forceInstall No

Enter number of item to edit <return to exit, q to quit without saving>:

My question is how do I edit this so that my up2date will go get the newstest kernel and install it itself? What command , after I've edited this will i need to excute to start the update and install (the new kernel and updates) and once it's updated do I need to return the up2date back to these settings? Plus after I've gotten to new kernel and reboot will i need to choose the new kernel?

Thanks in advanded

change line 6. to 6. pkgSkipList []
run 'up2date --help' It will tell you what switches to use. I think, but not sure,
than it will be 'up2date -i'. I am all up 2 date at the momant so I can't try
them myself. And no, you do not have to undo anything afterwards.
