I just checked the netinst.tar.gz for lenny it has kernel 2.6.24-1-486.
Which means that all installers for lenny should work with your PC.
I would suggest that you simply download the netinst CD ROM, burn it on CD
and try installation with it.
I think the problem you have now is that you have downloaded just the boot
part of the kernel but not the rest of the drivers, though I'm not quite
Just try with the CDROM. If you have fast internet you can download the Live
CD. It can save your life at any time and any place.
