RE: Debian: abandon ship?

Yes this is my true and given name.  Long story short: my brother was a fan,
my mom agreed to something she never thought would happen

Yes, the official kernel of Woody for the i386 environment is 2.2.x (IIRC
other environments will default to a 2.4.x kernel).  I don't recall the
particulars of the decision to make i386 Woody a default 2.2 (probably to
deal with low end hardware), but someone had a reason (although I've seen it
argued).  However, 2.4.x is supported fully under Woody and works fine for
i386.  It's easy enough to compile your own or use a predefined one, but
they are definitely available on woody.
