You could install the testing version - Debian Squeeze, which I believe comes with 2.6.32. It is not likely to be as stable as 5.04 (Lenny), though. If you are even more adventurous, you could install the unstable version - Sid.

Or, you could go to www.kernel.org, download the source for the kernel of your choice, and roll your own.

As an aside - giving your thread a title like this will result in most members ignoring your post. A more appropriate title would be something like "Debian 5.04 - How to upgrade Kernel" or something along these lines.

Most of the members that post here have limited time to answer questions; and open up threads where a meaningful title leads them to know that they have an answer/suggestion to your problem.
