No, you're not running the right kernel - 2.6.8-9 is very old, and has
security flaws in it. If you stick with sarge, update your kernel to
kernel-image-2.6.8-12-em64t-p4-smp - or more generally, install the
kernel-image-2.6-em64t-p4-smp metapackage

Cool, so the meta package always depends on the latest kernel image, nice.

Should there be any worry in installing this updated kernel on my
server? The only complied software is amavis-new... other than that
its all apt-get'ed.
