Where can you find old Kernel-source packages (2.4.21)?

If you use the Debian package search tool ( ) to find kernel-source package you only see the last 5-6 kernel version for a given release.

Is there a repository for older released kernel version?

Where do you go to get kernel-source-2.2.21?

If you are willing to compile it yourself, you can get it from

However, this will not be the same as a Debian kernel-source package.
