What am I doing wrong?  I can't find 
linux-image-2.6.... (or any linux kernels) at

[Is it supposed to be in
http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/l/linux-kernel-di-i386-2.6/   ?   I don't see it there either.]

Adept package mgr (kde gui front end to apt) shows I have "linux-image-2.6.12-386" installed, but I don't see it in the pool.  That archive is where I'd been trying to pull packages from when I changed breezy to dapper in /etc/apt/sources.list, right?

I'd been told to get kernel 2.6.15..., I think, which is what the developers are working on for dapper, iirc.
