    Download the most recnet source from kernel.org, then extract it, read the INSTALL doc or this combo will generaly handle it

    make menuconfig

    make && make modules_install
    then copy the resulting system.map and bzImage over to your bootable partition and point the bootloader to them. But it is also likely that mandrake has some automated system for this whole process.

    or for a slighly more graphical approach: make xconfig instead of make menuconfig
