ok to all the drama queens discussing that they changed the version numbers and whatnot, just remember to use kernels bigger than whatever you use now if available... who cares if they jump versions on increments of 0.00000001 or 1000000000 ... geez, if he wanted this could be kernel 398828811.000000002 and you would still use it and like it !
