Thanks.

it is not updateable using a bash script.  You need to download the source for the new kernel and compile it.  You could make it into an RPM and after making sure that your modifications work, push if you have satelite server.

you would then have to maintain the kernel. make sure if security, etc. issues come up to the kernel you use.

the modules and such, you might want to look at dkms that will simplify kernel specific module compilation.
Have you previoously built a kernel?  The kernel source has readme, install instructions.

Kernel is update able using Bash script but going from 2.6 to 3.2 is a big of the jump that i decided remove the upgrade option at once. and start everything from Scratch...
