I see package called kernel-image-2.4.18-i386bf

$ apt-get build-dep kernel-image-2.4.18-i386bf
$ apt-get source kernel-image-2.4.18-i386bf
... hack tree
$ cd kernel-image-2.4.18-i386bf*
$ debian/rules binary

or something??? should work, as I see it.  What as the problem?

My mistake.  I was expecting a kernel-source-2.4.18-bf or something
like that.  Come to think of it, why _does_ Debian have kernel-source-*
packages if apt-get source kernel-image-* should work?
