The 20k repository has had many updates from Fedora, including a new kernel today.

Code:
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

Oh yeah, for the kernel, it's like:

Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install kernel#2.6.9-1.3_FC2


apt-get won't automagickally upgrade the kernel. You need to explicitly state it. Also, you'll need to edit /etc/grub.conf to make it default.

when you install the kernel in this way, what happens to the old one? would i need to edit grub.conf to reflect any changes?

The old kernel stays in place. You can edit /etc/grub.conf to pick which kernel is default. Just change the "default=" line. It starts counting at zero, so if you want the second kernel listed use "1" for example.

In BLAG9k, 10k, 20k, the newly installed kernel is /not/ default. Starting with 30k, when a new kernel is installed, it becomes the default.
