Yes, if you install the necessary userspace utilities. This includes
module-init-tools, and newer versions of a lot of other packages,
perhaps procps, util-linux, e2fstools, lm-sensors and some more. There
are 2.6 backports available from backports.org, that packages should
satisfy the most important dependencies.

If you compile the source from kernel.org, use the newest version.

Yes, but perhaps you need newer initrd-tools. There also 2.4.27 packages
available from backports.org.
