Linux 2.4 on PowerBook G3 pismo


I am running Debian Linux 3 (woody) on my PowerBook G3 pismo and a
2.2.19 kernel. Everything is fine but I would like to move to a 2.4
kernel in order to get usb floppy and power management support.

I installed a standard debian 2.4.18 kernel by using apt-get. Then X
doesn't work anymore: it seems that X clients cannot connect with the
X server (see the typical scripts I get when trying to launch manually
xinit (the same takes place with xdm)).

Does anybody have some explanation to this or knows where I can find a
correct 2.4 kernel image for my PowerBook ?

Many thanks,
