2.2.x kernels are "release" kernels.  2.3.x kernels are "development" kernels. 
In the 2.3.x kernels new features can suddenly appear, and new bugs.
2.3.8 has a particularly bad reputation for losing data from hard drives. I
recommend that you use 2.2.11 unless you really know what you are doing.

>/boot/System.map incorrect version.

Make your kernel with "make-kpkg" from the "kernel-package" package and you
won't have this problem.  Using Debian packages of kernels is the best way to
do things.  It's the best thing to hit kernel building since "make menuconfig"!

Also please note my .sig...

I'm in Utrecht.  I'd like to meet any Linux users in Amsterdam or nearby areas.
Also I'll travel to other cities for users group meetings.
