Installing kernel upgrade from 2.4 to 2.6



I am using Debian Sarge with a 2.4.27 linux kernel.  I have tried to
install a new kernel with: "aptitude install kernel-image-2.6-i686" but it
does not replace my old kernel (2.4.27), even after a cold start.  I don't
feel entirely comfortable with Debian, so I'd appreciate any help.

I am including a copy of /boot/grub/menu.lst and of /etc/apt/sources.lst


# menu.lst - See: grub(8), info grub, update-grub(8)
#            grub-install(8), grub-floppy(8),
#            grub-md5-crypt, /usr/share/doc/grub
#            and /usr/share/doc/grub-doc/.
