Wow, not too fast.  Have you compiled 2.5 series?

Other than geek bragging purpose, why you are doing this.

What... did you do "shutdown -h now"?

You must be kidding.  If you can compile 2.5, I hope you did it nicely.
Or did you ave some APM/ACPI issues?

Anyway, if you try successful compile with 2.4 kernel you can go ahead
with 2.5.  But I recommend to get upgrade to testing/unstable for
development tool (at least in chroot) so you can compile newer kernel.

The best help maybe telling you to use 2.4.20 kernel :)

I hope you know that Debian comes with 2.4 recompiled kernels.
