Installing a New Kernel
One of the frustrations of an easy install from one CD is that regardless of your processor, you will get a generic kernel that may not be well suited for your hardware. This tutorial shows you how to upgrade from the generic kernel that is designed for the Desktop to a kernel that provides better use of a higher end CPU, in this example a Dual Core Xeon. This process can be used to build a real workstation instead of a Desktop. You will get more out of your hardware by making this adjustment.
