Downloading the Upgraded Kernel

There are several ways to determine if there is an updated kernel available for your system.

If there is an updated kernel for the version of Red Hat Linux you are running, download the appropriate packages using one of these methods. If you used Red Hat Network to upgrade your kernel automatically, you are finished — just reboot your system to use the new kernel. If you just downloaded the RPM packages from the Red Hat Linux errata page or from Red Hat Network, proceed to the Section called Performing the Upgrade.
