Well assuming you use debian canned kernels like I do...
Apt-get install kernel-image-2.4/6-arch (I use kernel-image-2.4-k7);
kernel-image always depends on the latest kernel in that branch. 

So all I have to do is my normal dist-update (not sure if plain update will do it; I
can't remember) and it installs it for me.

go around behind him to see what he's leaning on." -- Conan
