# I installed 2.0.29 last night.. apon returning to the machine this morning
# and rebooting, I found it to still be 2.0.28. I remember doing everything
# right, unzipping it, checking all symlinks, everything. I decided to
# check the version.h in /usr/src/linux/include/linux, and it still said it
# was 2.0.28.... This startled me incredibly, and I was wondering if its a
# bug in the kernel, or was it just something I've done?

I'm not much of an authority, but I don't think you should send this
sort of thing to Linus.

I don't know if this really counts as a 'bug'. Make the appropriate
change, diff it, and post the patch. (Or, if you think you may be
mistaken, d/l the patch to 2.0.29 and check it.)
