Ta, that did the trick.
When I dpkg -i the image it complaines that '/lib/modules/2.6.3 (may)
belongs to a old install', I have been moving it to .old but douse this

Yes. You'll have to move the .old directory back to 2.6.3 if you want to
use the old kernel again. Another trick is to use the
"--append-to-version" parameter so that there is some extra stuff added to
the end of the kernel version. For example, --append-to-version=new will
put the kernel modules in the /lib/modules/2.6.3new directory.
