well.. I only installed kernel-source for 2.0.30...
maybe you forgot to access the cdrom while using dselect...
in dselect, use the first option to access the cdrom, and you have to 
umount your Debian CDROM first...
or you can mount it first, and run dselect, and in the first option,
choose 'mounted' and type in the directory you mounted your CD.

yes, just as before...:)

i dont know... but i dont think so....
dpkg deals nothing with kernel....
