Asynchronous I/O Linux

Hi experts,
I want to enable Asynchronous I/O with my Oracle 10g R1. It seems like my kernel does not support it.
My OS: RH  Linux host.com 2.4.21-27.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed Dec 1 21:59:02 EST 2004 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
The question is:
Is it possible to upgrade the kernal or OS while software is already installed on it?
How do i go about it?

Yes, i've done it before. Just install kernel from RHEL4u4
But leave old kernel installed as well. I've read hat some machines were having problem booting the new kernel.

Also, You aware, that linux AIO implementation is buggy? Refer RH and kernel bugzillas.
