Question Kernal Upgrade

I am kinda new to Linux and I have never done Kernal upgrade and I was wondering if you guys could steer me in the right direction on documentation and places to get that stuff.

Mostly, if you do a make xconfig you can read about any options given to you. I would suggest that you read all of them, even if you're sure you don't have the hardware - especially when it comes to SCSI bits. I would also advise that if you're not exactly sure on things that have the option of 'module', then make them a module - it doesn't increase the size of the kernel, and it doesn't have to be loaded if you don't want it to be loaded.
