I installed Kernel-2.6.14 from unstable. That seems to have worked fine.
$ uname -r
But ... now when I do an apt-get dist-upgrade, it comes up telling me that the kernel will be replaced (presumably to rebuild driver modules.) I say OK to that, and this happens:
The following packages will be upgraded:
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove.
Need to get 0B/16.1MB of archives.
After unpacking 69.6kB of additional disk space will be used.

The directory /lib/modules/2.6.14-2-amd64-k8 still exists. Continuing as directed.

I do appear to have an issue with available drive space:

I suspect that I need to clean up the / directory rather than increase it's size, but ls -al doesn't suggest anything obvious to me that should be deleted.
Suggestions for my next step would be appreciated.
