I decided to compile a newer kernel and found that executing
apt-get update and apt-get upgrade doesn't download the newest kernel.
My question is: what other packages fail to be upgraded when the 
apt-get upgrade command is issued?  Is kernel-source-* the only 

The rest of the story is: 
grep kernel-source /var/lib/dpkg/available | grep Package; 
apt-get install [choice of kernel-source package]

...got the kernel source installed.  I picked the 2.2.18pre21 which
is the latest even numbered ver that showed up in the available dir.
