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,
