Upgrading the kernel

I am needing to upgrade my kernel to something newer because I am unable to find the header files for my kernel. I currently have 2.6.24-1-686. How do I upgrade the kernel to something newer in Debian Lenny? Thanks.

Assuming you're actually running Lenny, and by the phrasing of your question, I think you may well not know the answer to that...

# aptitude install linux-image-2.6.26-1-686
