Yup, it is from Jan 17 2005. I'm running the same version. It is rather old,
but what is old? Nah, I'm kiddin' ... ;)) It's not thàt old.

If you're is used to use bleeding edge kernels, then it would be "old" I
guess, but *you* would know *where* to get the newest.

But as ordinary users, we'd better stick to stock SUSE (or Novell) kernels.
And the latest update to the stock kernel is... 2.6.8-24.11. This means you
and I are up-to-date, so no need to worry. :)

One source is:

http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/ftp.suse.com/suse/i386/update/9.2/rpm/i586/

I could, but that would be the bleeding edge version; unless you know what
you're doing, I recommend *not* to use it.

Cheers,

Leen
