    For compiling the kernel and setting options etc. See the tutorial here

    http://www.linuxheadquarters.com/how...lreasons.shtml

    Pretty well written.( Just replace the place where he uses 'xconfig' to use 'menuconfig' if youre using Debian Sarge.)

    I just compiled 2.6.12.3 for it and it was OK.

    Though I encountered other problems with Debian particualrly with the sound system so I just quit it and installed Mepis

    That's not really needed in Debian.
    Simply use Apt.
    First see what's available:
    Code:
    apt-cache showpkg kernel-image
    Pick the latest one for your hardware.
    Code:
    apt-get install kernel-image-x.x.x-x
    ...and that's it.
    Hello, My apt-get source list doesn't have source for 2,6. Do you happen to know where can I find one ?

    Thank you
    Tom

    You mean the kernel-source package ?
    You should have it...
    Code:
    apt-get install kernel-source-2.6.8
