OK, let's give that a try...

First, make sure all is current:

Athlon64:/# apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -s

No errors but a few updates, so:

Athlon64:/# apt-get upgrade && apt-get clean

Looks good so far.

Now for the kernel:

[Check apt-cache for latest version and find 2.6.10-9, so installing

Athlon64:/# apt-get install kernel-image-2.6.10-9-amd64-k8
kernel-source-2.6.10 kernel-doc-2.6.10 -s

No errors, so let's do The Real Thing:

Athlon64:/# apt-get install kernel-image-2.6.10-9-amd64-k8
kernel-source-2.6.10 kernel-doc-2.6.10

and reboot...

A crapload of boot error messages, but alsa appears to load OK, although
my USB cordless mouse has gone.  Quick halt and add USB->PS/2 converter
and restart...

Another crapload of startup errors, but nothing that looks too serious
that it can't wait and I have my rodent back; so let's try some music...

(a few minutes of tinkering with mixer and other XMMS settings later)


Thanks again to all who provided input, and especially to Mr. Sorensen
for the key info that enabled me to finally enjoy my new system to it's
