Thanks a lot for your fast reply.

I  temporary worked  around     the problem, by  introducing  my   own
kernel-image-2.4-XXX packages,  but  I'd like to  try the experimental
branch too.

How much experimental  is it? Is it  safe to grab  it and replace  the
version which comes with the beta4 d-i?
