[svlug] a dumb question re: linux upgrade

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to find out the answer to a question about upgrading a linux
version.

Isn't upgrading the kernel the same as upgrading the version? I would
imaging unless there were significant changes made to the newer version of a
distro that I should be able to upgrade the kernel and packages and
basically have the new version.

Am I right or wrong?

Thanks for setting me straight.

Brian.
