That's what I thought you meant. I'm still confused as to how it
relates to Debian, but *shrug* I'm sure it makes sense to you =)
Gotta have a working PC inside, Debian is the distro I plan to use.
With Redhat moving towards their Fedora scheme I figure that a move to
Debian is the best way to avoid any more surprises from another
comercial vendor. I've also noticed that most distros that are built
upon another are built upon Debian, so it must be pretty good.
Anyway I believe I should get kernel version 2.4.22. That's the
latest stable one, right?
Is there a .deb package (and where is it) or should I just get the
.tar.bz2 one from kernel.org?
I did find a HOWTO but it is pretty redhat centric and assumes that
one has X running. My X doesn't work, I'm sure I'll be posting about
