No, it can be installed. I reinstalled Woody on an old machine (just to
be sure). I installed from CD using the 2.4 kernel. CD 1 and 5 (the one
with the deb package for the 2.4.18-bf2.4 Kernel) are known to apt.

Look at this:

andreas@polaris:~$ uname -r

andreas@polaris:~$ apt-cache policy kernel-image-2.4.18-bf2.4
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 2.4.18-5
  Version Table:
     2.4.18-5 0
        500 cdrom://[Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 r1 _Woody_ - Official i386
Binary-5 (20021218)] unstable/main Packages

So the 2.4 boot floppy kernel _is_ installed and running, but apt does
not know it. This is what I meant when I wrote "Because the package
management does not know of the install kernel." It doesn't know it is
