Mandrake 9.2 Kernel


l am looking to update my kernel in Mandrake 9.2. Does anyone have any links to good how to's for this? I'm the usual noob around here.

The other question that I would have besides how to, is how do you know which kernel to switch to?

Thanks
David

It should not be all that hard

There is an "install" text file that comes with the kernel when you download it. It has instructions on what to type in. There is also a good guide to upgrading the kernel in Mandrake that is in the documentation. They both suggest slightly different ways of doing it. However, make sure you back up your old system and your data. Something like what I posted below may happen to you.

What about kernel choice? Should I typically choose the most updated kernel version? Or is this more complicated, than say driver choice?
