Just download the source (it's in the kernel-patch-2.4.26-mips
package) and compile it; stick the kernel in /boot and update
Also, if you let us know which modules are useful, we can built them
into future versions of the Debian kernel. I know the Qube has one
PCI slot but I'm not sure what people put in there. I guess sound
cards make sense, but what else?

You don't need a patch to get the LCD working. Just use the "putlcd"
program which is included in the colo package.
