Hi, I still have problem on installing the sound card. I lost you ,wqclatre, on the 11. I just don't know where is the  "olde kernel" in system's directories. If you can explain a little more, I will appreciate! thanks,

OK!

You can probably find your old kernel under /boot/ and the name of the kernel is probably vmlinuz.
 Are you using lilo ??
Than you can make a enty for the new kernel in it so you can chose which kernel to boot.

Just put your new kernel in /boot (cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage /boot/zImage)

And add somethinge like this in your /etc/lilo.conf

image = /boot/zImage
root = /dev/hd?
label = New-kernel
read-only

replace hd? with youre linux root partition.
then run lilo

Now you can chose to boot youre new kernel at boot.
(Just chose New-kernel at the lilo-prompt.
