There are more recent builds (with security patches applied) that are
in the security archives, or you can use make-kpkg to compile more
recent kernel *versions* (see www.kernel.org for the current versions)
from sources.

I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
See http://www.gnupg.org/ for info about these digital signatures.
My key was last signed 10/14/2003. If you use GPG *please* see me about 
signing the key. ***** My computer can't give you viruses by email. ***
