Thumbs up

1. go to www.kernel.org and download the kernel...
2. read the instructions (child's play !) http://www.debian.org/releases/stabl...h08s05.html.en
3. you are done

and btw there are some customized kernels that should provide some patches/better desktop performance...but I don't know much about them

apt-cache search 2.6 will probably supply you with the kernel-sources, images and patches you are able to download with apt. afaik, some sources name the kernel source "linux-source-versionnumber". Besides, not all versions are available for download. So use apt-cache search before you apt-get install

If the kernel 2.6.10 isn't in debian archives, it is normal that you are not able to apt-get it :-0

If you're in sarge, 2.6.8 is the latest kernel available from the sarge repositories.

you can just run apt-get install kernel-source
This will list available sources and its proper package name.

It looks like 2.6.10 isn't a source package that's still in the package tree.
