Please can you tell us which exact kernel package version you have
installed? 2.6.32-5 quote above is the kernel ABI version which the same
across multiple kernel packages, from (I think) package 2.6.32-12
onwards up to and including 2.6.32-21 currently in Sid and likely for
some future packages as well.

As Pasi asks please try booting without X. It would also be useful to
try the latest package from Sid, it should install cleanly on Squeeze.
