    During an installation?
    Just boot your CD with linux26.

    To build your own, see:

    I've used a couple of times pre build kernels. It will give you a hard time for sure.

    The best thing to do is make your own kernel for it. I'm using the Debian Sarge and Xandros Desktop Business OS.

    Both have their own kernels build on my own. I don't want to have pre-compiled kernels. To much crap in it what i don't want to use!

    you can either apt-get the kernel.. which means it installs it pre-built, or you can compile it from source. you would download the source, maybe tweak it, then compile it from C to something the computer can read (binary).

    (someone plz correct me if im wrong, im new to this linux world)

    Yea, I'll stick the 2.4. When I apt-get the 2.6 kernel it doesn't work.

    Why is this?

    It ran fine on my laptop, but not on my desktop.
    Perhaps the kernel image you used was not suitable for your desktop machine. What type of CPU do you have on it? If it's not a 686-type CPU, it won't work; you'll need a different kernel-image.
