Newbie Question

Okay, after loading a new machine with Debian 3.0r1, I've found that I need to install a 
newer kernel.  Without the kernel, debian won't recognize my NIC or my display 
adapter.  So, I don't have internet access on that computer.  
I'd like to download all the necessary files to upgrade the kernel from 2.2.x to a 2.4.x
kernel.  But, I don't know which files to download, and I have no idea how to upgrade
the kernel the 'Debian Way'
Once I have the files,(once I find out which files I'll need) I'll download them to this 
machine, and burn them to a CD.  Then I'll copy them to the new machine.
>From there, I'm at aloss.  Any help that I can get would be MUCH appreciated.
I'm not new to linux/unix, just new to Debian.  And I don't understand the package
system very well, or doing things the Debian Way.
