Ok so I've decided to patch my 2.0.30 kernel up to 2.0.32 and I apply the
2.0.31 patch like this.

        [root at davidhspc linux-2.0.31]# patch < patch-2.0.31

And I get a number of messages like the one below.

        Hunk #38 succeeded at 1487.

Then I get the following message.
        Hmm...  The next patch looks like a unified diff to me...
        The text leading up to this was:
        |diff -u --recursive --new-file v2.0.30/linux/Documentation/Changes
        |--- v2.0.30/linux/Documentation/Changes        Tue Nov 12 22:23:13 1996
        |+++ linux/Documentation/Changes        Mon Aug 18 20:16:26 1997
        File to patch: 

What should I do?
