How to downgrade kernel?
Just a real quickie - hopefully so quick that it would be more effort to

really like to get it working. So I use apt-get to download the
appropriate kernel, headers and pcmcia-modules. But how do I "activate"
it? Presumably I need an initrd image in my boot partition? None have
