Oh, So maybe 2.4.20 source is not in stable after all.  I'm not clear
why apt-cache search is listing kernel-source-2.4.20:

>From the manual:

       search search  performs  a full text search on all available package
              files for the regex pattern given. 

I assumed "available" meant the packages available via the listings in
sources.list. But trying apt-cache search kernel-source-2.4.20 on
another "Stable" machine with the same source.list returns nothing.  So
I guess "available" includes packages manually installed. 

Hum, I cannot remember installing that package, although it is 

  ii  kernel-source-2 2.4.20-8        Linux kernel source for version 2.4.20 with De

my notes for the machine show I used

  wget ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.4/linux-2.4.20.tar.bz2

so much for taking good notes.  I must have had some problem with the
kernel.org version and just copied the package from a Sid machine.  

Time to try out 2.4.23 from kernel.org.
