Okay I retrieved and installed the 2.4.26 kernel with apt-get.  I boot up with
both the SMP (which is proper) and non-SMP kernel.

under each scenario - GNOME environment fails which the following appearing in
the .xsession-errors

--- snip ---

$ cat .xsession-errors.backup
GThread-ERROR **: file gthread-posix.c: line 135 (): error 'No such process'
during 'pthread_getschedparam (pthread_self(), &policy, &sched)'

and when I switch to KDE environment I am unable to run applications like
xterm and mozilla.  so this kernel does not appear to be working well for me.

any other clues?
