Installing linux-image

I am trying to install the linux kernel 2.6.16 image but i'm getting this:
moran:~# apt-get install linux-image-2.6.16-1-686-smp
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 linux-image-2.6.16-1-686-smp: Depends: initramfs-tools (>= 0.53) but
it is not going to be installed or
                                        yaird (>= 0.0.12-8) but it is
not installable or
E: Broken packages
moran:~# cat /etc/apt/preferences
Package: *
Pin: release a=sarge-backports
Pin-Priority: 200
Is this expected?
