You have to add the kernel version number that you want:
kernel-image-2.2.17 or kernel-source-2.2.17, for example.

Each kernel release is a separate package.

     "He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded
      us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is 
      high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward 
      them that fear him. As far as the east is from the 
      west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from 
      us."     Psalms 103:10-12
