Ayup! That's what i do. That's but not the problem. The problem is I can't
untar the 'linux' directory as linux-2.0.x directory. I have to untar
everything in a separate directory. eg

cd /tmp
tar zxvf linux-2.0.tar.gz
su mv linux /usr/src/linux-2.0
ln -s linux-2.0 linux

I have to untar it this way so I don't overwrite my existing linux

rep00857:~$ ls /usr/src/linux* -d
/usr/src/linux/ /usr/src/linux-2.0/
/usr/src/linux-1.3.57/ /usr/src/linuxggi/

Like i said, it's no big deal. It's just a minor inconvenience on my part.
I am the kind of person that likes to keep multiple versions of kernel
sources in separate directories. Also, I am too lazy to use...

(cd /usr/src; zcat ~/patch* | patch)

...coz I can download the entire kernel source from a nearby university
within 45 seconds. ( Ethernet rulez! :)
