inspiron 5150 and 2.4.24 kernel


Did anybody manage to compile a working 2.4.24 kernel for Inspiron 5150? As of 
version 2.4.23 I was not able to compile kernel and have acpi and usb to work 
properly. USB mouse doesn't work at all, and processor fan works at highest 
speed all the time. I tried with my own kernels and debian precompiled ones, 
but the same problem persists. Kernel 2.4.22 works perfectly. 

Another thing -- my BIOS is A01, and Dell suggests upgrading to A29 or 
something version. I've read some reports that BIOS upgrade affects linux 
performance badly. Does anybody have experience with this for Inspiron 5150?

Many thanks,
