updated package and all dependendent packages using "synaptic", manual adding dapper source 
temporarily to /etc/apt/sources.list. 
Here is the result ================ 
Kernel starts, but graphics shows vertical lines only, boot does not finish. 
Starting with vga=791 shows the following output. 
insmod: error inserting '/lib/modules/2.6.15-9-686/kernel/drivers/video/console/bitblit.ko' : -1 
Unknown symbol in module 
insmod: error inserting '/lib/modules/2.6.15-9-686/kernel/drivers/video/console/fbcon.ko' : -1 
Unknown symbol in module 
insmod: can't read '/lib/modules/2.6.15-9-686/kernel/drivers/video/softcursor.ko 
' : No such file or directory 
Usage : /bin/sleep seconds 
ALERT! /dev/sda2 dows not exist. Dropping to a shell!

start splash saying "Loading Modules" and switching the LED shortly ON for approx. 1 sec. 
Lets see, whether the old kernel starts ... 
Yes, puh ;-)) 
Note : I am working productively with that laptop. 
So whats about building that kernel from source ? 
Sometimes thats few destructive. Is the source-package 
for 2.6.15-9 available as well (preconfigured ?). 
Forgive me if I ask silly questions, but this installation is my first time using Ubuntu. Before 
that I used Debian Sarge and before that Suse (until 8.2). So even, if I am impressed about 
the tremendous work you guys did for Ubuntu, I need that laptop for work - and thus a stable
