Question Where can I download the 2.6 kernel and its source?

I'm using RH9 and I searched the RedHat site and didn't see it available for download. I also seached with google and although it returned a lot of hits, it was just somebody mentioning the 2.6 kernel, with no mention of where to retrieve it. Ideally, somebody can tell me where to download it in RPM format.

Rep: Reputation: 48 is the official site of the Linux kernel. Dunno if they have RPMs, but it's just about as easy to install the source anyway.

well since your running redhat9, and since their support is running till april for that version, why not just run up2date, if you really want to use rpm's for whatever reason ...
