[Techtalk] upgrading debian

Hi there,

I upgraded my kernel from 2.4 to 2.6. If I boot into 2.6, networking 
does not work. I have tried all sorts of things to get it to work 
(mostly making various changes to /etc/network/interfaces), but can't do 
it. I've been wanting to move from main to testing for a while, so I 
thought maybe doing a dist-upgrade would solve the problem. Of course, I 
can only do this when I am booted into the 2.4 kernel. When I try to do 
it, apt-get wants to remove the 2.4 kernel, which I'm not ready to do. 
So now I am stuck, and not sure what to do. Ideas?
