Its not necessary to mix in unstable packages with the stable 2.1 release
to run the 2.2.x kernels, like the other poster said. I am running 2.2.12
but I have mixed in a number of unstable packages because I already upgraded
to glibc-2.1 prior to compiling the 2.2.12 kernel. I upgraded some of the
packages that were not supposed to work with the 2.2.x kernel as mentioned
on the Debian site.

I have had no problems running 2.2.12 with some unstable packages. A lot
depends on how the machine is intended to be used so YMMV.
