You're welcome.

It's not that daunting. It's a bit of preparation, one make command,
and a more or less long wait. :)

Once D-7's released (in a few months?), it'll have the 3.2 kernel like
U-12.04, so you may as well apt-pin the 12.04 kernel and upgrade to
12.10, rather than re-install LMDE or Debian.

Should you really want/need to have a later kernel and not have to
compile it, you could download a Debian deb from [1]. The 486 flavor's
non-pae (and uni-processor).
