Upgrading kernel
 
this is a very general topic indeed, but i just need to know how to upgrade my kernel from 2.4.20-8 to 2.4.20-18.9

before i do that, is it worth upgrading? (what will i benefit by upgrading) and what are some risks?

do i install it by logging on as root or by doing a "su" in terminal as a user? i will probably need each command explained, thx

well ... either a) you could do it yourself or b) use the up2date which comes with rh9 and let it do it for you.
there is a sticky thread in the slackware fourm about the steps and there explanations on how to do a kernel upgrade.
