I actually went to Woody mostly so I could use the USB ports on my
laptop like I wanted to. I have not tried using 2.4.x kernels on
potato, though I heard there were reasons not to. With woody I got
2.4.17.

AFAIK there's no reason you can't use a kernel.org kernel on
Debian. Just follow the instruction in /usr/doc/kernel-package/README
carefully.
