Since 2.4 is not supported by Debian and is barely supported by a few
kernel developers, it is hardly the stable option.  If you are aware of
specific unfixed bugs in Linux 2.6, I suggest you report them.

Maybe it works for you, but it is not supported.  This was made fairly
clear in the release notes:
<http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/release-notes/ch-upgrading.en.html#s-newkernel>, <http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/release-notes/ch-information.en.html#s-incompatible-2.4>.
