6 good to go - you just need to edit grub.conf and thats it
8 gentoo slots all kernel versions so all you need to do is update the
9 /usr/src/linux symlink to the newly installed kernel version.
11 dont forget that gentoo runs with /boot partition unmounted so
12 you will need to mount it before you copy the new bzImage over
14 If you are changing to 2.6 then there is the udev versus devfs choice
15 to make, I would choose devfs in the 2.6 setup until your happy then think
16 about udev after that.
