The easiest way is to use Yast with Online Update. Set up the factory
repository that I listed above as an Installation Source under Yast.
After the source has been recognized, in Online Update do a search
for "kernel". Select both the default and source kernels and Yast should pick
up the rest of the required files automatically.
Keep in mind that if you use ATI or nVidia proprietary drivers that you will
have to uninstall and reinstall them.
Zen is a bit of a pig for this process unfortunately. It can work if you have
already listed the factory repository as an Installation Source and you only
select the default and source kernels to be installed.
Good luck
Ralph Ellis
