I want to run Debian or a variant thereof with Kernel 2.6.29

I have been considering LFS, however, with that not including instructions for the current Kernel release, I'm a bit nervous about running into problems
at compile time, or worse, at run time. I'd like to know if there's a guide available that would help in building the system that would cover any random
craziness that may occur while updating to 2.6.29.

I could I always attempt this with the current Debian version using LFS, but I don't think that would cover loading any additional kernel modules.

Does anyone have suggestions for how to approahc this?

Lots of patience. LFS does not create a "distro". You will be building
and compiling Linux. Your Linux.

Follow the LFS book. http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/stable/
Use jhalfs from the ALFS book: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/alfs/
GCC failed on me several times, now I am "remastering" the PCLinuxOS distro.
LFS only builds the main OS. You will need BLFS for Desktop, networking, sound, etc.

Roll your own Linux:
