Blinking dir


I have Mandrake 10.0 with kernel 2.6.3 I am trying to update my kernel to 2.9. I was following some instruction on this website

but right now I can't go into my linux folder, because it's blinking. What do I do?

It sounds like you have a broken symlink. Just remove it and recreate it. If you are unsure then post the output from:
ls -l /usr/src
