I have the Mantel's latest kernel installed on my laptop however I'm not 
certain what it is that I have.  What I mean by that is how do I find out 
what XFS version and patch level do I have so that I can decide on patch 
upgrades?  I know it says kernel 2.4.18 however is it really 2.4.19 pre... . 
As you can see, I'm not certain of the versions and patch levels contained 
within the Mantel stuff.
