There are good chances that Etch will contain 2.6.18, but due to some
open bugs the Release Candidate 1 of the installer has still 2.6.17.
One of the most blocking bugs is http://bugs.debian.org/395889 as there
is currently no way how the installer could install an 2.6.18 kernel and
packages that depend on udeb.
Please feel free to help us fixing these bugs.
