    use the search function and screw the server your self

    or ask someone to update the kernel for you (datacenter / your colo guy)

    What OS are you running?

    If its RedHat then you can use up2date.

    You can update the kernel using

    up2date -f kernel

    vi /boot/grub/grub.conf

    But if your unsure in anyway then I would suggest you get help from the server administrator, or datacentre.

    haha that was sooooo freaking easy and they act like its so hard.... You run up2date -f kernel and then edit /boot/grub/grub.conf and change default=1 too default=0 and save then reboot.... Thats like soooooooooo easy.........

    Thanks for your help everyone :)
