Is the only possible to upgrade the kernel by upgrading FreeBSD as a 
whole? For now if I understand the total upgrading idea. I would like to 
keep FreeBSD stable. in order to upgrade the kernel I need to:

1 Use the cvsup program (gotta figure how yet)
2 Rebuilding world:
read /usr/src/UPDATING

# make buildworld
# make buildkernel
# make installkernel
# reboot

single user mode 
# mergemaster -p
# make installworld
# mergemaster
# reboot

# cd /usr/src
# make buildkernel KERNCONF=/MYKERNEL/
# make installkernel KERNCONF=/MYKERNEL

/Darn this looks pretty complicated  :-P
