You don't need to install a full woody system to run a 2.4.x kernel. I
administer a large number of potato boxen and just picked the necessary
source packages from unstable and recompiled them, with very minor changes
to satisfy some different dependencies due to files that belong to
different packages between unstable and potato. There are a few sites that
make available the needed precompiled packages for potato, if you don't
want to do it yourself. Look at http://www.fs.tum.de/~bunk/kernel-24.html
and people.debian.org/~bunk/debian. I migh also let you have the debs I
recompiled, but I would not trust them if I were in your shoes... :)
