You need either the package linux-image-<flavour> or 
linux-image-2.6-<flavour> and a new kernel will be installed as soon as 
the Kernel Team updates the dependencies of these packages.

Whether one of these packages is installed by default depends on how you 
installed that particular machine (example: it might not be installed in 
expert mode since AFAIR you get a specific question about which kernel 
package to install).
