Upgrading Kernel question

I wish to upgrade to the latest kernel to enable support for the Promise Ultra 66 pci card and enable UDMA mode 4. I am having trouble figuring out the steps needed to complete this. I am running both RedHat 6.0 and Caldera's 2.3 on 2 separate machines.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Download the latest rpms for the kernel. Install.

If you want to do it from the sources, download either the SRPMs or the .*gz files. Make the kernel.

It would be advisable not to uninstall your old kkernel or upgrade it but instead make a fresh install, configure lilo, reboot to ensure that the new kernel is installed properly and then uninstall your old kernel.

The steps given above work for redhat.
I believe Caldera also uses RPMs for installation, so it will work. I am not sure about caldera, because I have no experience with it.
A very good HOWTO for this can be found at
