Hi Bill,

If you apt-get install linux-image-2.6-686 ... from testing, at the moment,
you'll get 2.6.12.

I was surprised to find the name of the kernel-image package was changed
recently, and I'm guessing it was to make room for alternative kernels
(hurd, freebsd, etc)...

Description: Linux kernel image for version 2.6.8 on PPro/Celeron/PII/PIII/P4.
 This package contains the Linux kernel image for version 2.6.8 on
 Pentium Pro/Celeron/Pentium II/Pentium III/Pentium 4,
 the corresponding System.map file, and the modules built by the packager.
 It also contains scripts that try to ensure that the system is not left in
 a unbootable state after an update.
 .
 If you wish to update a bootdisk, or to use a bootloader to make
 installing and using the image easier, we suggest you install the latest
 fdutils (for formatting a floppy to be used as boot disk), and LILO, for a
 powerful bootloader. Of course, both these are optional.
 .
 Kernel image packages are generally produced using kernel-package,
 and it is suggested that you install that package if you wish to
 create a custom kernel from the sources.
