    You can download, the vanilla kernel from
    That's the kernel source. Uncompress and unpack it (with bunzip and tar) in whatever directory that you want.

    Then, move to the top-level directory and type make xconfig or make gconfig or other equivalent command. This launches a window to customize your kernel. Then you need to save changes and compile and install the new kernel.

    For a more complete explanation, please Google it

    Best Regards
