A couple of questions...

First, I'm wanting to upgrade to the current kernel (and keep everything
working!). I understand that it is best to get the latest source for bin,
usr.sbin etc...etc... but is there a recommended order for compiling?
Ie...kernel first, then the OS programs...and maybe gcc last, or do I
upgrade to egcs first and then compile? Which would be best?

Second, I also know I need to change the identifier from 165 to 169 and know
how to do this via an old email in the list archives, but is there a
document which explains all these little things without having to go back
over months worth of current-users mailing list to find out everything I may
need to have done?

Any pointers would be appreciated, last time I ended up in a right mess and
ended up going back to a 1.3.2 kernel.
