RE: updating the kernel?

My system currently has 2.2.18 and I wish to upgrade to the most recent one
without reinstalling the whole system and with least downtime.  I don't have
physical access to my system.

not unless u r doing a major jump (say from 2.0 to 2.2 or from 2.2 to 2.4)
and even then u can keep yr existing setup.. u just need to do more if u do
this kinda jump.. if u r upgrading from the same series, then u can either
download a binary for your distro or u can follow what i had said in the
earlier mail!
