    The kernel installations methods differ based upon whether you want to use a custom built kernel or just change between distro supplied kernel, if you wan to change distro supplied kernels then we need to know what distro you are running.

    If your using RedHat, simply doing "yum install kernel" will give you the latest kernel from RedHat repos.

    Do you want to install compiled yet kernel or personally compile it? If you want just to install, use your package manager. To compile the kernel, you need first to download it from kernel.org. Move to your /usr/src/, make a symbolic link to your karnel source with command:
    ln -s /usr/src/kernel-version /usr/src/linux

    Change directory to /usr/src/linux and make command:
    make menuconfig

    Configure your kernel and you can compile:
    make all

    And install it:
    make install
