If you are really using Potato with a 2.4.x kernel, that is most likely
the problem.  There are those adrian bunk packages that allow you to do
it, but it is an ugly hack.  You really should try upgrading to woody. 
Then you should be better off.  After you have done the upgrade Im
guessing both problems should go away.  Try doing the upgrade and then
report back if the problems still exist.
