    You can pretty much always "just install the packages", as it will yell at you about any missing dependencies you might have.

    You should get the new module-init-tools when upgrading to a 2.6 kernel, else you might have problems loading modules and stuff.

    I'd also suggest grabbing the new headers and re-compiling your tool-chain (glibc, gcc, binutils, zlib, ncurses, texinfo) with nptl.

    Also, even if you don't recompile your toolchain with nptl, it's still a good idea to grab the newest versions anyway.
