I just did this and it worked fine. I have 2.4.7 kernel, but Woody. I put
in a new video card - nvidia and needed the driver. Someone told me to get
X4.2. I used 'apt-get xfree86-common xserver-xfree86' after 'apt-get
update' with testing in sources.list. Then I installed the nvidia kernel
and glx. I don't think it would matter, but I did it after upgrading X.
This process didn't mess up the rest of my install.
