I guess, this is mutual exclusive. People which are lazy will leave many
(and I think also bigger) security holes some where else on the system, so
that it won't matter, if you keep your kernel that much secure...

Ever considerd the package 'kernel-package'. This makes out of any kernel
source debian packages, which then can be installed with dpkg, apt-get or
what ever ...
If the box says 'Windows 95 or better', it should run on Linux, right?
