I've installed that kernel a few minutes ago, without any problem on

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.

* I tried to build the debian installer based on 2.6.18, but at least one udeb module is not yet prepared for that kernel (eg. acpi-modules). * I tried to boot IDE HDD from my old box, but it ended up with Grub Error 21 (I'd solve this, if only I knew the device mappings, hd's, md's..)

Can anybody tell how many months will I have to wait for those new udebs? I guess Virtualization on Windows now is the only possible way to run linux..
