  For those following along at home, I recently had a similar
issue with drivers, but solved it differently -- the 2.6.32 
kernel (same version number as Ubuntu 10.04) is in lenny-backports.

  Of course, if the issue is missing SATA or network drivers 
messing up your install, the backport kernel is not as useful, but
still, it's an option.

  There was some talk at the time of the lenny release that a
"lennynhalf" kernel release might be provided, similar to what
was done for "etchnhalf", but I haven't heard anything recently
about that.
