Please think seriously about upgrading this to at least Debian 4.0
You have no security support: you have no updates: you are running a
version of Debian that is now well behind the current Debian stable.
If the server is not critical / you have few users using it, consider a
full reinstall of Debian 4.0 or 5.0. [The move from kernel 2.4 to 2.6
was slightly more difficult than usual and there were other major
changes hence the major version bump].
The release notes for 4.0 should tell you how to upgrade: the release
notes for 5.0 tell you how to move from 4.0 -> 5.0
All the best,
