I need a release with kernel 2.6.2


I'm using a laptop where its a known problem that my sound card doesnt work with versions of the kernel prior to 2.6.0. I dont know enough about linux to compile the kernel and implement it myself, so what would be a good distribution to use that comes with that kernel?

Thank You!!!
