It has been decided for a long time that Lenny won't support 2.4
kernels. Even support for 2.4 kernels in Etch is partial. Anyway libc
2.5 don't support that without a lot of patches.
If you want to stick to kernel 2.4 you probably want to stick to old
software, so please stick to Etch and do not upgrade !!!
