http://ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-6.0/kernels/kernel-modules-2.6.27.29-i686-1vl60.tlz
http://ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-6.0/kernels/kernel-src-2.6.27.29-i686-1vl60.tlz

and 5.9 here:
http://ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-5.9/kernels/kernel-2.6.27.29-i686-1vl59.tlz
http://ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-5.9/kernels/kernel-modules-2.6.27.29-i686-1vl59.tlz
http://ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-5.9/kernels/kernel-src-2.6.27.29-i686-1vl59.tlz

Do we install these like regular packages? Should we modify LILO to allow a choice between the old kernel and the patched kernel? I need a little guidance about how to install these.

download the kernels and install like any other package.
You will need the kernel and kernel-module packages, the kernel-src package is optional and only needed to build kernel and drivers
After you install run vliloconf or manually add the new kernel to your bootloader.
After rebooting with the new kernel and verifying that it works on your system, you may remove the older kernel if you want.

Since this is apparently a major security patch, will it be included in the downloadable vl60 iso files from the download page on vectorlinux.com so it won't have to be added after installation?

OK...just to be on the safe side...download the kernel packages, right click on package, click install package, enter root pw. After installation then change the /boot/grub/menu.lst to reflect the new kernel. This ONLY applies to those that are using GRUB as the bootloader !
What script do you use to remove the old kernel ?

Well, lost wireless love with the patched kernel with my laptop.  I have a Dell Latitude 600 with the infamous Broadcom 43xx chip.  Cry

Now to patch the desktop (crosses fingers).
