Hi All, I know this may not necessarily be a Debian issue but I'm posting in thehope that someone can offer a solution or a point in the right direction atleast.

Hello all.
Can anyone please point me in the right direction to the path of least resistance to upgrade my kernel to 2.6.11. I did google but found no definitive suse centric help and the novel site is user looking for help unfriendly. I'm on dial up so no YOU for me. I DO need to upgrade, my TV card sound does not work with the SL9.2 default kernel.
I have downloaded the RPM, now what? Kind Regards.
Trenton

I'm running Redhat 9 on a machine with a public static IP address. I have locked it down so that only ssh on port 22 is active.
I need to setup ipchains so that only two public IP addresses can gain access to this server. The two remote IP addresses are known and are static (not DHCP).
What changes to the firewall do I need to make to ensure that only those two IP addresses can gain access to the server.
TX in advance Maurice

This is too strange. I added some True Type fonts to my RH9 machine todayfollowing the instructions on the RedHat site: http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-9-Manual/ref-guide/s1-x-fonts.html I should be able to see them in Nautilus at fonts:///, but I can't, andno application can see them - when logged in a user.
