    The patches on kernel.org (not ck patches) allow you to upgrade an old kernel. You can do the following methods to upgrade your kernel with the patch.

    1. Download the patch and apply it to an old kernel directoy (2.6.16.20, etc.)

    2. If you have an old kernel that it still zipped, you can uncompress it and then apply the patch. bringing it to the latest version. Very useful for dial-up users.

    My laptop powers down in the middle of building the kernel. I may scream.

    Any idea why this is occurring?

    Is it over heating ? Check that your fans are properly functioning. Another reason is that it may have been idle for too long making is shutdown.

    Step 1 on the post doesn't work for me (using latest Ubuntu Live CD install). Does anyone know how I can get that to work?

    You can't install things on the Ubuntu live cd. You will need to install for that. Even if those things were installed you could not boot into the kernel. The live cd is read from the cd drive.

    Re: How To Compile the new 2.6.16 kernel from kernel.org

    Because kernels created this way don't appear in the Synaptic Package Manager, what is the correct way to remove them?
    I have always wished for a computer that would be as easy to use as my telephone. My wish came true. I no longer know how to use my telephone.

    Oh nm, they do appear in the Package Manager. My mistake.
