for a workable kernel that supports all sorts of video, mpeg4, etc....?

I'm trying 2.4.18, but to no avail with Linux4video, xawtv, etc.

Depending on you hardware 2.4.18 is ok. It works for the link i gave you. Read documentation, faqs search web and so on. Your configuration is not correct if nothing works. Try a standard debian 2.4.18 kernel, apt-get it. Read documentation on you specific hardware since this is not a matter where generalization is in order. Also search the web for your specific problems. Dont focus on kernel versions too much, but use your time reading information about your hardware and how to configure kernel correct.
Good luck.
