Kernel downloads

I apologize for using this forum for my reply and thanks. Someone pointed
quite correctly out to me that I should have addressed my questions and
complaints to another group. But since I started here let me finish here.
I want to thank all the people who tried to help me. I have learned
quite a few things. I didn't want to offend. It is just frustating
sometimes when you spend a lot of time on something and it does not work
as expected. Someone suggested that the short versions were tar files and
the long versions were tar.gz files. Since I still had the files I tried
that approach. But this time I got the message: this is not a tar file.
In any event I have the 1.3.9 kernel which worked. Concerning a proposal
to download only from bona fide mirrors or the horse's mouth, I have very
often been refused access or been told that the particular mirror at the
moment would not honour requests. Be that as it may, once more my
heartfelt thanks. K.H.Kossmann
