Hi again,
	When doing the apt-get install for the single processor non-acpi 
kernel, I got this...

Executing RPM (-i)...
package kernel-up-2.4.19-2.ll.acpi (which is newer than 
kernel-up-2.4.19-1.ll) is already installed
Executing RPM (-U)...
error: failed dependencies:
	kernel-up = 2.4.19-1.ll is needed by 
E: Sub-process /bin/rpm returned an error code (1)
E: Sub-process /bin/rpm returned an error code (1)

What'd ya think?
