I keep getting this email from [kernelcheck]:

&This message is to inform you that the machine is running an older kernel which is known to have problems with quotas and possible root security holes.

Should I be upgrading my kernel?

Thanks bdraco. I assume I should request an upgrade to version 2.4.18? Is there anything I need to worry about regarding WHM/CPanel during a kernel upgrade?

The linux kernel completely stands alone from WHManager/CPanel........................... the only thing you or the guys doing the upgrade need to worry about is getting all of the drivers/hardware support built into the new kernel, so your machine has all of its components (ethernet/both CPUs/complete memory).... when it boots into the new kernel.

As far as the CPanel product as a whole, a kernel upgrade does NOT have any effect on it.
