not really....

if someone builds a kernel themselves and not use a debian kernel
package, then the version is still 2.4.xx-payy, so your check will
succeed even though the custom built kernel is 2.4.19-pa1

i guess you can do something like this:
if [ $ver = ${ver/pa/} ]
    if dpkg --compare-versions "$kernel_ver" lt 2.4.19-64 
    if dpkg --compare-versions "$kernel_ver" lt 2.4.19-pa17

it's kinda ugly, but it should work.
