Well, my woody only has 7 Binary-CD-s and one Add-On-CD (Open Office).
So, I never expected the
kernel sources to be on them.
find /cdrom -name '*kernel*' -print
yielded kernel 2.2.20 and 2.4.xx
apt-get install kernel-sources-2.2.20 kernel-sources-2.4.18
So now I think I can compile my own kernel

What do you do if you are looking for a program with particular features
but don't have the slightest idea as what it might be called. Here
browsing the CD's has often been a good idea, but will no longer work
with the new layout.

makes sense.

dkpg -r xdm
dpkg: dependency problems prevent removal of xdm
  x-window-system depends on xdm
so I cant't remove it, but I think it should not be installed by

Thanks for the help
