No, I installed Debian with a 2.4 kernel then upgraded to 2.6. And I
know what I'm doing, and it has always worked in the past. Before I took
a vacation this summer I was running a 2.6.5 kernel with an older set of
nvidia drivers, both compiled from source on my own machine, and UT2k4
worked fine. In fact, it worked out of the box, without any additional
tweaks of my own.

So, in short, there is no reason why installing ANY Debian system and
then re-compiling a 2.6 kernel should not work.
