kernel exploit update?

Hi List!

This is maybe a silly question, but after the latest mail from suse
about the new security hole in kernel < 2.2.15 I downloaded the file
k_laptop.rpm (which isn't mentioned in the mail and there is no md5sum
either but I wanted to use apm..) and tried to update via yast - install
packages -> failure. Then I tried to update using rpm (rpm -U
k_laptop.rpm) -> failure.

Now I suspect I have to recompile my kernel with the provided file, is
this correct? (using patch)
I'm using suse 6.3, kernel 2.2.13

thanx in advance
Markus Faber
