How do i update the kernal and kernel devel? Can i do this from the Yum Extender, or from command line? Either way doesnt matter, but im so new to linux i just need a little more guidance.
I think i have step two done once already, but im confused still yet on how to install rpms. Like if i download them from sourceforge, and have them on my desktop, how do i actually install them? untar from command line?
Ive been trying to self learn this and this wireless thing is killing me. Any more info would be greatly appreciated.

1. you can update kernel and kernel-devel by;
yum update kernel
yum update kernel-devel
2. you can simply double click the rpm packages to install them; or type:
rpm -i %rpm package file%
if there are dependencies, type:
yum localinstall %rpm package files%
