  Hi, Finally I've installed debian on PE2600 following steps remarking in 
www.domsch.com/linux/. I'm using the defaults disks find it with kernel 
2.4.20-bf2.4, but not included SMP and other modules necesary for our 
requirements. If I compile newer kernel version (such as 2.4.21, 2.4.21-ac4 
or 2.6, with default drivers or original drivers of ftp.lsil.com) it's 
crash when booting, saying:

  do you know how I can compile with any kernel?
  is necesary RAMDISK for booting this server? and megaraid module?

  Thanks.
