This is off-topic for this list. However, I will answer your question. 1. Find a Fedora Core download mirror near you. http://fedora.redhat.com/Download/mirrors.html 2. Get into the updates folder and find the versions of the kernel that you want. For example in the Duke University mirror site for a 64 bit machine they are located at: ftp://mirror.linux.duke.edu/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/4/x86_64/ For other architectures, simply replace the last directory name: ftp://mirror.linux.duke.edu/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/4/i386/ Then download the kernel rpms for the 1653 kernel. If you are building drbd yourself, you need to get the kernel-devel package as well. 3. Install the packages with rpm -ivh kernel-*.rpm 4. When you reboot the machine go into grub and change to the desired kernel. Whenever you update your kernel, do not replace the current kernel with: rpm -Uvh use: rpm -ivh kernel so that you preserve the old kernel in place. If you used yum or up2date to update your machine, you must still have the old kernel. check with: rpm -qa | grep kernel to find out all the kernel versions installed, then recompile drbd and install the drbd kernel module also with the -ivh flags. This way you will keep drbd kernel modules for all kernels in your system. After a week or so of testing with a new kernel then you may consider it safe to remove the old one. But always keep the most recently working kernel and drbd module for a period of time that you consider safe in case you have to go back to it.
