I have been using debian on my server, and building my own kernels on it since
early 2006 without any problems, with packages, or any thing else,
because of a custom kernel. Yes, the system I've been doing this on
since early 2006 is still alive and kicking, has gone through 1 or 2
debian upgrades, is running lenny now, and is running a custom kernel,
though not the same one I started out with in early 2006. HTH.
