The installed packages don't depend on the kernel's revision level. You 
can easily upgrade to a 2.4.18 kernel, if you wish, simply by 

apt-get install kernel-image-2.4.18-pmac 

and changing your bootloader to load it.

In your case, if you like 2.2.20, just do the same with the 2.2.20
kernel-image. Apparently you mixed a 2.2.19 installer with a 2.2.20 
root.bin somehow.
