In order to download the Pentium F00F fix, get the following files:

The procedure for compiling a new kernel is described in detail
elsewhere. To patch the new kernel:

cd /usr/src/
mv linux linux.old
tar xvzf linux-2.0.31.tar.gz
cd linux
gunzip -dc /?/pre-patch-2.0.32-4.gz.maybe |patch -p1 -s -N -E -d

where /?/ is the location of where you downloaded

Compiling a new kernel is described in any good book on Linux, or in the
appropriate HOWTO.

People using PCMCIA will also need to download and recompile the pcmcia
suite. Look here:
