[debian-non-standard] 2.4 kernel on Asus WL500G Premium

I haven't had any problems with flashing a 2.6 kernel image on the above 
mentioned and using a usb stick as the root filesystem, except for the 
fact that wireless does not work. OpenWRT with 2.4 kernel ( 
iirc) works without any problems, the userland in debian etch seems to 
work with 2.4 (file reports

ELF 32-bit LSB executable, MIPS, MIPS-I version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 
2.4.1, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped

and I've actually completed the second stage of debootstrap from openwrt 
and installed a few packages by chrooting) but I just can't seem to 
build an image with a 2.4 kernel that boots. I'm blindfolded for now, 
but that will change as soon as possible.

So, my question is: has anyone tried this? Am I missing something?

Thank you for your help,
Luci Stanescu
