Both worked for me.  Some newer version of boot disk was having some

Also moving from 2.2 to 2.4 kernel using debian pre-compiled kernel
needs some attention since new one are highly modular and you may need
to add few entries for the module in /etc/modules

If you have choice, do not dist-upgrade after many programs are
