I'll look /etc/issue, or for sure in your /etc/apt/sources.list for
stable, testing, unstable. I suppose you are running Sarge (testing)
or Sid (unstable), because without backporting  module-init-tools and
other support packages to Woody, you can't run 2.6.x kernels.

I think 200 or 400 should be enough, anyway have you looked in the Debian BTS?

Here (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?which=pkg&data=sendmail-base&archive=no)
