    Bill, magnate,

    I did have the 2.4 woody kernel and the kernel sources but not the headers.
    I might be interested at some point in compiling a kernel, but my priority
    is to get an apache-server running. So maybe later. I'll make sure to have
    the headers then as well.

    For now I've just downloaded the sarge distro and everything is working
    fine. Thanks a bunch for your good advice. It wouldn't have occured to me to
    install a 'testing' release as a newbie otherwise. Maybe the debian website
    needs some more advice as to which distro newbies should use.
