    how tos

    the rhn up2date applet will do this for you. But the sources list points to a strange one.
    open a terminal and changed to root
    then cd to this directory /etc/sysconfig/rhn
    copy your existing sources file in case something goes wrong
    cp sources sources.oops

    then edit your sources file and replace the contents with this:
    Code:
    yum fedora-core-1 http://download.fedora.us/fedora/fedora/1/i386/yum/stable
    yum fedora-us-core-1 http://download.fedora.us/fedora/fedora/1/i386/yum/os
    yum fedora-us-updates-1 http://download.fedora.us/fedora/fedora/1/i386/yum/updates
    now use the up2date applet in gnome to search for updates. the kernel should be in there.

    ***** May be you should ignore me as I just noticed he said kernel 2.6 and that isn't available on these repositories yet. *****
    VERY SORRY
