Disclaimer: The information presented here is decades old and relevant only for legacy linux distros.
There is a few things to consider, before you download one of the kernels below:
Size: Be sure not to pick a kernel too large to fit with the rest on the diskette.
This can of course be tricky, if you don't have a filelist.
Device Drivers: At least your harddisk controller should be supported.
Kernel Version: It is always a good idea to go for a version matching the one used by
your distro. On the other hand, the latest device driver for IBM SCSI is in 2.2.18. If you plan to do
serious networking, it is a good idea to go above 2.0.x. Masquerading and firewalling using
*ipchains*, requires a 2.2.x.
Warning! File extensions are *.exe, to
force your browser to treat the file as a binary, and not a text file that
could be corrupted during download. Use right-click and save-as. When download
is completed, rename the file to vmlinuz, before transfer to your Linux system.
