i can't speak for debian but if they update and compile your kernel for
you then i'm using the wrong distro. i think your best bet would be to
download the newest kernel source at www.kernel.org and spend some time
reading the documentation and give a shot at compiling a new kernel cuz
you are gonna have to recompile even if you patch. i suggest the 2.4.4 i
have compiled it on several machines and it works fine and dandy.
side note i think getting the latest userspace for iptables would be a
good thing too.
