"In the following article I'll discuss, in brief, compiling of a new kernel, or an old one, which ever pleases you most, on a example of the upcoming kernel 2.4.0, by using the 2.4.0-test9 version, and some references on new and improved firewalling implemented in it, called iptable."

"First of all, you'll need to grab yourself a copy of the latest kernel, I believe that the latest stable version is 2.2.17, or if you feel adventurous the latest 2.4.0-test10, an unstable one. Unstable, but, on the other hand more fun and fitted with the latest candy and surprises.It resembles a pinata of some sort. A good guess would be to try here (ftp.kernel.org), or a mirror near you, but don't be afraid of the image in it! On the other hand, it'll save you a lot of time and nerves if you can pick it up from a CD shipped with plethora of those PC/computer magazines lying around."
