excellent.  did you follow Kevin M. Rosenberg's HOWTO [1]?

[1] http://cvs.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/doc/debian-amd64-howto/?cvsroot=debian-amd64

If so do you have comments or additions?

The kernel is based on the 2.4.22 kernel in unstable and
 + 23-pre5 patches from kernel.org,
 + few minor patches to get compiling.

You can get all the patches from the source package [2].  The diffs are
in amd64 dir and are applied in the order listed by amd64/sequence.

You will need an updated version of kernel-package [3] if you want to
build the above with dpkg-builpackage.
