    I assume you're upgrading from sarge to etch (etch doesn't have a 2.4 kernel, you don't need an extra installation cd for this)...
    All you need to do is:
    Code:
    apt-get dist-upgrade
    If your sources list uses sarge, replace that with stable or etch.
    Next run:
    Code:
    apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
    PS: I really don't understand what you mean by "Kernel NOT INSTALLEd".

    Yes.
    Just boot your system with your boot disk and it should work.
    Once your system is running again, you can easily apt-get whatever kernel you like.

    Press the funtction keys to see your boot options.
    I'm meant "linux rescue" and not a new install. The CD just already includes a working and bootable kernel

    These are the only options:

    linux (normal install for 2.4 kernel)
    linux26 (installs the 2.6 kernel)
    expert
    expert26

    there is no rescue, is there a specific way to install it??
