A) Hey - thanks Rick!

B) I asked the specific question above because I'm trying to match _exactly_ what Daniel has done, since:
a) I've gotten conflicting info from ubuntu developers/etc, one who told me to get the latest kernel into my Breezy (but his method didn't succeed), and others who have also indicated this is impossible/very_hard & 
b) Daniel says he has accomplished this and it works.

Rick - same as "B" above. Also, I'm not going to be trying to add in optional programs, I'm just doing this upon the suggestion from Ben Collins that I do this to see if the latest kernel fixes a bug with exteral disks disconnecting (timeout).  So, I'd like to get the specific list of packages to add besides the kernel, which worked for Daniel.

And, I thank you for your suggestions. :)  [And also for whatever you did which Daniel said he relied upon to get his system to work with the newer kernels.]
