I think Mandrake 10.0 is the only one who moved to 2.6x I believe. I could be wrong though...

Mandrake 10 has a 2.6.x kernel. Of course, you could roll your own at (, where you will find 2.6.5, the latest stable version.

Don't forget to backup first!

Gentoo-dev-sources is pretty much always up to date.
