I can give a try, I just finished a 2.6.4 build
Linux hebus.sis.pasteur.fr 2.6.4 #2 SMP Thu Apr 1 15:51:33 CEST 2004 ppc

but to be honest I don't have any idea about how to use the kernel*
debian packages. i've always built the kernel using the prehistoric way
ie: make [oldc|menu]config, make  ;-)
as i don't care for a lot of features built in the prebuild kernels....

 Je voudrais savoir s'il existe un compteur de vitesse (?) pour savoir
 à quelle vitesse on est réellement connecté au FAI et surtout si une
 telle bête existe... où la trouver.
