Thanks yea I figured it out shortly after posting. I wanted to delete my post but it seems I only have the ability to edit my post. Yea I had to run lilo. I should not be so quick ask. I should first try to figure it out myself.

Thumbs up Many thanks

I want to thank you guys for your help.
Ive been able to successfully upgrade to the kernel 2.6.24.

As a reminder, if you use nVidia video drivers, download the latest version and be ready to install it after booting the new kernel.

There were a few other drivers I had to reinstall including Madwifi and the hsfmodem driver.
FYI I found a FREE driver for my Conexant hsf modem here. Instead of paying $19.99 to linuxant.

To sum it up, Ive learned alot from the following links:

Bruce Hill's instructions on compiling a new kernel.

evilDagmar was very informative on the compiling commands.

and last but not least,Linux Kernel in a Nutshell.

These are all a must read prior to compiling a new kernel.
Thanks again!
