Linux 2.2 does not have LVM as standard. If you want to use a 2.2 kernel with
LVM you will have to patch and build your own kernel from sources. In which
case it would be far easier just to get a Debian packaged 2.4 kernel....

No. Debian packages don't automatically install kernel modules because they
don't know which kernel you are running.
