Which kernel must I take ?

Hi there !

Meanwhile, it seems clear that my first install on my Targa laptop was really "messed up", as someone once said ... (for example : I get as "segmentation fault" while doing ext2resize on a brand new partition !), so I decided to try again from scratch my NetInstall, using this CD image : http://debian-amd64.alioth.debian.org/install-images/2004-07-01/sid-amd64-netinst.iso

Question : between the differents kernels I can choose (2.6.x-generic, 2.6.x-k8, and so on), which one is the best for me ? I had the impression, reading the information aptitude gave me, that the 2.6.x-generic series is not really optimized for amd64, or did I get it wrong ?

The computer is a Targa Visionary 811 laptop, apparently based on a VIA motherboard (VIA-rhine Etheret card, that is for sure), graphic card ATI Radeon mobility 9700.

Thank you all.
