I would update the kernel. You need to download a new Linux kernel then build it under root. There is a heap of information on building and installing new kernels. Just do some searching

I'm sure Mandrake 10.0 has a 2.4 or above kernel by default.
what is the output of the command:
Code:
uname -a

It does, but the standard Linux entry in the boot manager is a lower kernel for some reason. I think because it was unstable at the time. In you boot manager there might be other entries with just a hole bunch of numbers. Those are the kernel version you wish to boot, Is there that?

true also because some of the apps do not support kernel 2.6 in mdk10.0
