So, I upgraded my distro to it's newest release (from Zorin 4 to 5) and kernel 2.6.38 is working fine for me.
I got mint11 since you said you had problems with that, and when I ran it also ran into a few problems, but I can verify whether or not those where kernel related.
I looked on google and found:
Which will show you how to get,compile,configure the kernel, and how to make an initrd image and update your GRUB to recognize the new kernel (There is alot of steps here I didn't take into consideration when I updated to 11.04) ... It tells how to do it for 2.6.25 but I assume the steps are the same ... Hopefully that helps you out.
If not, You'll just have to wait until someone else stumbles upon this thread ... LQ is all volunteers and they can only help when A) they see your problem, and understand it B) they want to help and most importantly C) they have the time.
But hopefully that link will give you some insight ... Good luck
