First, thanks for the response and the command hint. That's helpful.

Is there possibly a dependency bug somewhere? I found I had a number
of kernels installed that I'm not using. Getting rid of them would
save about 200MB so I started to work on that in Synaptic. After my
first round of removals I'm down to the point where I have the
following installed:

34734355  kernel-2.6.5-1.358
42842211  kernel-
43805516  kernel-
50446714  kernel-module-alsa-
52103757  kernel-module-alsa-

Now, I'm not going to run 1vR9.ll as it didn't work well for me. 2vS7
is working great, at least when I set the interrupts up by hand. I
tell Synaptic to remove 1vR9 and it then tells me it's doing to
install kernel-smp---- 1vR9

Why can't I get rid of that kernel revision completely?

Spacewise the biggest offender at this point is 

189309520  kernel-sourcecode-2.6.8-1.521

but I suppose I probably need to keep this?
