The version in the archive for kernel-image-2.4.18-powerpc is
2.4.18-1woody5 from a security update. The change log indicates
patches from Apr 2004.


I no longer run Woody at home, and my job no longer requires me to
adminster one. But as I remember my woody boxes (all x86, I'm a
powerpc newbie) you did NOT automatically get the latest kernel by
doing an apt-get update. You had to explicitly get and install the
latest kernel.
