You don't need the entire src iso, just the source for your running kernel...

Installing the entire src onto a running machine is just dumb as it will be of no use except for the kernel in this case...

Even if you DO compile your entire system you will not notice any differences, in fact, slackware, which is based off the old i486 is faster than the optimized gentoo in all tests i have seen...

So just download the source for your kernel, now remember, it has to be the source for the kernel YOU run atm...

OR you could try to compile your own kernel, i think anyone dealing with linux should do this...

Kernel sources will be found at www.kernel.org
