Why not install with 2.4 and then use apt-get command to download/install 2.6 kernel? That is what I did. Piece of cake.

# apt-cache search kernel-image

It will then list what available and choose the latest kernel for your hardware (AMD K6, K7 or Intel i386, i686)

Use this as an example: kernel-image-2.6.8-1-686

# apt-get install kernel-image-2.6.8-1-686

Then reboot

# init 6

Login and make sure you have the latest version

# uname -r

You're done.
