Kernel 2.4.20 - Debian

Hi all. I downloaded the file: kernel-source-2.4.20_2.4.20-8_all.deb then ran dpkg -i kernel-source-2.4.20_2.4.20-8_all.deb Ran dselect, and selected the new kernel and told it to configure and install. However, I'm still loading the kernel 2.2.x Did I skip a step, or did I miss something entirely?

    Default Kernel 2.4.20

    Hi all. I downloaded the file: kernel-source-2.4.20_2.4.20-8_all.deb
    then ran dpkg -i kernel-source-2.4.20_2.4.20-8_all.deb

    Ran dselect, and selected the new kernel and told it to configure and install.
    However, I'm still loading the kernel 2.2.x

    Did I skip a step, or did I miss something entirely?

    Thanks for the help

    Oops. The kernel-source is not the kernel-image. You did not load a
    kernel to boot from. You loaded up the kernel source which may then
    be used to either build your own kernel or build additional kernel
    modules or whatever. A good thing to have around, along with
    kernel-headers, but apparently not what you wanted.

    Taking an example from one of my machines, an athlon k7, you want to
    load "kernel-image-2.4.20-2-k7". Pick the appropriate kernel for your
    architecture.

    Since I am running woody/stable and wanted to stay there I temporarily
    added the following to my sources.list in order to easily install the
    new kernel. Then commented it out again after the installation was
    done.

    deb [url]http://http.us.debian.org/debian/[/url] woody-proposed-updates main non-free contrib

    Following the directions for the installation I installed an initrd
    kernel and added "initrd=/initrd.img" to my /etc/lilo.conf file. This
    is all as directed in the instructions but they are a little compactly
    written on the screen and so I mention it here so that you will be
    prepared for it.
