I woke up in morning and just found out about this announcement..
then.. first few minute looking for the link to download the new kernel
went to main page http://lkml.org/
there top-right menu got link to latest kernel
download that image (52 Mb) .. took few hour on my 3G..
tar xjfv /home/namran/Desktop/linux-2.6.28.tar.bz2
this will extract the content into /usr/src/kernels/linux-2.6.28
the menu will popup.. then select whatever driver that would like to add. save.
this one took me more than 1-hour.. hahaha.. went out for lunch then get back to see it ready..
then.. prepare to be install into grub.
mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.28-namran 2.6.28
this shall create the initrd-2.6.28-namran in /boot folder.
cp /usr/src/kernels/linux-2.6.28/arch/i386/bzImage /boot/bzImage-2.6.28-namran
cp /usr/src/kernels/linux-2.6.28/System.map /boot/System.map-2.6.28
edit /etc/grub.conf to reflect the new kernel.
