Linux 2.6 Kernel Released!

I'd just like to say and start discussing about this:
They released the Linux 2.6 kernel yesterday! Me being a linux user makes this news exciting. I'm using Red Hat 9 with the 2.4 kernel but I can't get internet to work so I can't download it through the online update utility.

This is an unoffical discussion about the 2.6 Kernel release.
I doubt RedHat will update to 2.6 on old systems. That will probably hang on til next release (Fedora Core 2). But I guess you can do it manually. ;)
It's a cable modem connected through my HP 10/100 Fast Ethernet Adaptor that came with my computer.

Also since this is a linux discussion, I'd like to say that I was able to get my printer to work.

what does ifconfig tell you?

Not to be condescending, but if you cant get the internet to work, recompiling a new kernel might not be your cup-o-tea.


Make sure that your computer is set to receive an IP address via bootp or DHCP (not sure which protocol Red Hat uses).

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
