I'm not sure what your particular problem was, but I had major problems with
the 2.6.24 kernels in hardy, too.  locales were never an issue, I simply
couldn't boot in any reasonable kind of time (10 minutes would do it - even
from hibernate).  I ended up running hardy for two months on the 2.6.22
kernel, and then upgrading to 2.6.26 from intrepid.

There's generally never an absolute requirement for a particular kernel with
a particular release of Ubuntu, so feel free to use what works.
