    Check for latest kernel version

    Hi,
    I just installed the latest version of Ubuntu Netbook remix (10.10) and I have a very straightforward question which can apply to any flavor of linux.
    How can I find out if there is an available update (or patch) to the kernel I'm currently running?
    I've read mention of commands like 'up2date' or 'yum'. Some of these command will list all updates available for your whole system. I'm looking to focus only on finding available updates for the kernel.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
