Get the 2.6.18 kernel from kernel.org and compile it with make-kpkg.
Well, I've also installed that kernel on my old machine. But the problem
is that I can't stand WindowsXP on my new box with P5B: I can't setup
linux, because the installer (latest, with linux2.6.17) detects no
sata/ide hdds, no ide cdroms.
