kernel 2.6.8 had some problems, thats why I suggested 2.6.11 or
later. After I think 2.6.11 (i.e., 2.6.12 and on) were named linux
kernel. Look for that. I run sarge, what I did was that I grabbed
2.6.11 from the sid site,
pick one, a kernel-image-whatever
then, become root, 
apt-get install udev; dpkg -i kernel-image-whatever;

You probably may need to reconfigure your xserver, with the command
dpkg-reconfigure xfree86-common (or xserver-common, don't remember
exactly), due to some changes in the mouse and probably keyboard
