You can get the src RPM of 2.4.2 from /pub/suse_update/7.1 and once you
install this RPM you can compile from that.

Make sure you delete the softlink linux in /usr/src first..because it
usually points to the 2.2.X kernel.

If two men agree on everything, you can
be sure that only one of them is doing
the thinking.
