Thumbs up

1. go to and download the kernel...
2. read the instructions (child's play !)
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.
