Sorry Cory - i didn't mean to sound so critical - your hard work is

Is a .26-rt kernel completely out of the question? I note that there is
a .26 based linux-rt package in the archives, but attempting to install
results in:

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  linux-restricted-modules-rt: Depends:
linux-restricted-modules-2.6.26-1-rt but it is not installable
E: Broken packages
