Debian 3.0r1 with newest stable kernet... How?

Hi!
I have tried to install Debian 3.0r1 on my old PC with a Maxtor 120GB
harddisk connected to a Promise Ultra 133 TX2 controller. Ambition is
to create a safe and stable Windows PDC with file & print server
functions. It should also handle a dial-up modem connection to
Internet and also have secure firewall. No X Windows or other graphics
should be used. All should be textbased.

My problem is that Debian couldn't see the Promise controller and
therefore not the harddisk either.

The strange thing is that Red Hat 8.0/9.0 and Slackware 9.1 could do
all that. I have tried, but I don't rely on them. So therefore I would
like to know how I can create an new Debian boot CD, but with the
newest stable kernel, 2.4.22, instead, so I could use my new harddisk.
I have no possiblity to compile a new kernel myself, so it must be
created in some other way. I would appreciate if anyone could explain
how.
