the minimum requirements are included in the kernel source. Look in the
Documentation/Changes file. Very straight forward. It even tells you the commands to
issue to get version numbers.

You may run into problems here. Potato is based on libc6 2.1 and slink uses 2.0. you
may have to grab the source and compile. I'm running slink, and upgraded necessary
packages before potato went to 2.1. Maybe someone who has done this recently on slink
could be more help here.
