No harm in trying. If it fixes your problem, just use 2.6.11. I'm not an
expert on ACPI, so I cannot really help you with it, unless there is
some more information on your screen when booting.

Install the kernel-package package. Download and install the Debian
kernel source. Unpack it (cd /usr/src; tar xvjf [name of .bz2]).
Configure (cd /usr/src/[kernel]; make menuconfig). Build (make-kpkg
clean; make-kpkg -rev=revision_version --append_=Martin kernel_image).
Install (dpkg -i ../[resulting .deb]).
This is just how I do it; it may not be the optimal way, and maybe it'll
even trash your system. Be careful to just type in commands other people
tell you. Try to understand what they do first.

What does alsa tell you? Did you install alsa? What sound chip do you

No idea. If it's only an error message but all seem to work fine, just
ignore it.

Does it tell you anything before that? It should give you more
information on what the errors were.

Try to give some more information when you report problems. Indicate
what you've done, what you expect, what piece of hardware you're trying
to get to work, what the related messages (errors, warnings, dmesg,
whatever) are, etc.
