    Generally it is possible, but I guess you'll have lots of problems. Many of the options for kernel 2.6 don't exist for kernel 2.4, so you'll have to find out a working kernel configuration completely by yourself.

    To have it very easy try the kernel script from SykHigh @ sysopforum.de
    It is very easy to handle, supports the 2.4 and 2.6 kernel tree (just the select the actual release), detects hda & sda devices for settint up the bootloader (grub / lilo) after sucessfull compilation.
    It is not a guarantee that it works fine afterwards, cause you have to configure the kernel, but it's reducing time.
