I am running a 2.4.27 kernel that came with my sarge system, no fancy

I'm imagining that since I'm just using a stock kernel, this should be
as simple as "aptitude upgrade $KERNEL-PACKAGE". Unfortunately, I can't
quite seem to figure out what $KERNEL-PACKAGE should be. "aptitude
search $whatever" turns up all sorts of kernel related results, and I
don't see an obvious one that makes sense. "aptitude upgrade" also
doesn't seem to upgrade my kernel.
I hate to ask the list what seems like such a basic question, but I've
spent quite a bit of time on this and am just getting more confused.
Seems like it should be easy, but maybe not...?
Thanks in advance,
I typically just do something like this:
In the case of the last kernel upgrade, the kernel was upgraded
automatically for me.
