To follow up on Mitchell's comments, you probably should install
the "2.6" kernel.  Try this:
  # apt-get install kernel-image-2.6-386

(Hopefully, this will alter GRUB for you.  If not, another learning

Once you reboot into the 2.6 kernel, install udev.  This package
allows you to write rules of action for each kind of device that
you define.

An ad run by the NEA (the US's biggest public school TEACHERS
UNION) in the Spring and Summer of 2003 asks a teenager if he can
find sodium and *chloride* in the periodic table of the elements.
And they wonder why people think public schools suck...
