Yeah :-) 

Now I can boot up normally but since I installed the modules
/lib/modules/2.2.19-umda-ext3, I get a lot of errors, missing modules
and such :-( 

The other kernel is full of _panic_ ( You know what I mean?)

Now I downloaded a kernel (not from Debian) in the /Drivers/ide section I do
find a hpt266.o but during the compilation I can't  find the proper place
to include it....
