Hmmm....some rather strange question...

Do you mean you want to switch a particular kernel version with your own compiled  ones or do you mean tuning the kernel parameters ?


Linux kernel, helps to detect hardware (disk, cpu, memory, printers, keyboards, monitors) and interface with usesr via your commands such as ls, df, fdisk, free, lpr and so on. Is that what you are asking ?

HOW TO SET THE KERNEL?
--> Kernel tuning parameters can be done via /etc/sysctl.conf. If you are a newbie, better not play with this unless you know what it's going to do to your OS.

WHERE DO YOU SET THE KERNEL?
/etc/sysctl.conf

HOW KERNEL INTERACTS WHEN A COMMAND IS FIRED?
Kernel is the layer where it talks to your hardware. So for example when you fire an "ls" command. The output will be the files and directories of your current working directory.

So here's what it does:
1. Ls command will tell the kernel i need output of current directory. Kernel is always accepting input from keyboard by talking to your keyboard
2. Kernel will call the filesystem codes to find the info in the harddisk.
3. Filesystem fetch back info to kernel and display to the user on monitor by talking to the monitor.
