    Default Downgrading Kernel on Live USB

    How would I use the 2.6.38 kernel? I understand I can make the changes in grub.conf, but im using a live usb.
    Where is the any key ???

    you'd probably need to compile it, which certainly can be done, but you'll probably not get much in the way of help here.
    Should be something close to this

    Looks fairly similar to what I do with gentoo kernel compilation. I've never done an ubuntu kernel, but it's likely that the backtrack .config or config.gz is somewhere in the filesystem.

    BTW, my reference was not meant to be a step by step guide, so it'll take some creative work to accomplish kernel compilation. If you've never done it before(compiled a kernel), check out the gentoo handbook, which granted is distro specific as far as getting the source goes, but is fairly generic otherwise.
