I'm really sorry I disappeared for a while... school got a bit hectic as the semester wrapped up. So I am back now. If you're still willing to work with me, I'll let you know this:
I followed your instructions you posted. I went to http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ and copied the i386.deb and all.deb files for this kernel http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa...3.6.3-quantal/. I then changed my directory to where I saved them. I installed, using:
I started with the all.deb file and got:
sudo dpkg -i name.deb
Then I moved on to the next one:

Unpacking linux-headers-3.6.3-030603 (from linux-headers-3.6.3-030603_3.6.3-030603.201210211349_all.deb) ...
Setting up linux-headers-3.6.3-030603 (3.6.3-030603.201210211349) ...
I then went back into the correct directory and realized I had downloaded two of the same file: linux-headers-3.6.3-030603-generic_3.6.3-030603.201210211349_i386.deb so I deleted one. And tried installing it again, but I got the same issue. Is this something on my end? Do I need to do something to uninstall my current kernel?

Is there a place where I can check to find the most recent and bug free or minimal bug kernel for quantal?
