When I do a CHECKRPMS, I get a message that I need to install at least
75 RPM's. Some of these seem to me not to matter that much, but I was
wondering if I should do the kernel upgrade from the present 2.2.14 to
the recommended 2.2.19 ? Should I anticipate any problems with the
upgrade? Do I need to restart anything after the kernel upgrade? How
about dependencies? Will they be satisfied if I just upgrade these

(1) kernel-2.2.19-6.2.16.i686.rpm
(2) kernel-headers-2.2.19-6.2.16.i386.rpm
(3) kernel-pcmcia-cs-2.2.19-6.2.16.i386.rpm
(4) kernel-smp-2.2.19-6.2.16.i686.rpm
(5) kernel-utils-2.2.19-6.2.16.i386.rpm

I'm upgrading out Dell dual processormachine, so I assume that I don't
need (3) and only one of (1) and (4) (in our case it would be (4)). Is
this correct?
