It just struck me odd that the latest is 2.4.2 while the prepatches were
2.4.3 so I figured there must be something I missed in between (my logic
told me that a 2.4.3 patch would be against a 2.4.3 something ;-).
BTW, I haven't seen any announcements from Linus in this mailing list
regarding new versions, just the updates on the web site and Alan's release
notes saying he's merging with 2.4.3xx. Are those announcements being posted
somewhere else now ?

Hello Hen, Shmulik,
Once you wrote about "Q: How do I get from the latest stable kernel version
to the late st prepatch version ?":
HS> According to http://www.kernel.org, the latest stable kernel version is
HS> 2.4.2. The latest prepatch version is 2.4.3-pre3.
HS> In order to get a full 2.4.3-pre8 kernel do I have to:
HS> A. download linux-2.4.2.tar.gz and all the patch-2.4.3-preX.gz and apply

HS> B. download linux-2.4.3.tar.gz (exists ?) and then apply the all patches
HS> C. download linux-2.4.3-pre7.tar.gz (exists ?) and apply only
HS> patch-2.4.3-pre8.gz ?
Download 2.4.2 and then apply 2.4.3-preX (latest) on it... that's it.
