You need to reboot the machine, and use a different kernel, a smart way consists in using:
# /sbin/lilo -R linux-scale # shutdown -r now

Kernels and general patches can be downloaded from
General installation instructions for Linux at SLAC are located here.
Before proceeding to step 3, it is important to read Warren's page about "Installing a WEB-100 Enabled System at SLAC". This page is written for the web100 extensions, but it is useful for the installation of any kind of TCP stack.
