    updating patch to kernel

    Hi All,

    i'm facing a problem while updating the patch linux 2.6.10 to "patch-" .
    here are the following steps that i have entered.
    1) copied the file "patch-" to linux2.6.10
    2) entered the command "bzip2 -dc ./patch- |patch -p1"
    then i got the error..

    can't find file to patch at input line 5
    Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
    The text leading up to this was:
    |Index: linux-
    |================================================= ==================
    |--- linux-
    |+++ linux-
    File to patch:

    please let me know what i have to enter here.

    Thanks in advance
