RH9 + how to update linux-2.4.20-8 to newer version

Hello, how do I upgrade my kernel linux-2.4.20-8 to a newer version linux-2.4.X ? I have never done that before. Is it very difficult for a newbie? Where can I get this newer version from the safe, secure website that is meant for Redhat 9? What are the step-by-steps I need to do after download? Please advise me!!

Once again, Thank you!!

Redhat 9 reached its end of life a while ago, so there are no more upgrades from Redhat. If you need to upgrade your kernel, you will have to check whether the project provides any upgrades for Redhat 9 kernels. If not you will have to compile a new kernel from source. Personally I would recommend you switch to a newer Redhat based distro such as Fedora Core or Redhat Enterprise Linux (or free rebuilds such as CentOS).
