Dist-upgrade to Etch
Cool news. So should I select that before I do the dist-upgrade or after the upgrade is complete? Not sure if selecting the 2.6 latest will cause problems for Sarge - if not, would definitely like to go that way now.
One of the first things I did when I set up my Linode was to switch to 2.6, and it didn't cause any problems for the Sarge image.
I've booted into the 2.6 kernel, but need to ask a stupid question. My iptables config (I use firehol) needs a /boot/config-2.6.18-linode25 file. How do I generate this for my new kernel?

For this particular kernel:
zcat /proc/config.gz > /boot/config-2.6.18-linode25
But it is better to make it kernel version proof:
mkdir -p /usr/src/linux zcat /proc/config.gz > /usr/src/linux/.config
