Default compiled new kernel: 2.6.3-7 --> 2.6.8.1 ... Good upgrade?

Just upgraded my kernel from a custom mandrake kernel 2.6.3-7 (default MDK 10.0) to the latest, 2.6.8.1 ... In general, I'd like to hear from users who've made a similar upgrade and know pros/cons, what's improved, etc. In particular, I was trying to circumvent some of the stability problems I've been having and was hoping that upgrading to the newest kernel would do the trick (I hope)...

thanks
