upgrade the kernel

Ive got and need to go to so I can run the linux live scripts.

What commands do I need to run? I want to keep all the kernel settings ive got at the moment. Ive recompiled my kernel countless times using

make menuconfig
make all or just make
make modules_install

So how do I keep the old settings and upgrade. I keep reading the command make oldconfig in google. Do I just use this then make all and make modules install?

Hope someone can help!

Many thanks

One way woul dbe to go into your old kernel, save the configuration into a known file (its the last option in menuconfig), then go into the new kernel and load it (second last option in menuconfig).
