Hi,

I've installed two poweredge 1750 with the debian Sarge netinst. 
Everithing went ok  until i upgraded the kernel to
kernel-image-2.6.3-1-686-smp. (the latest 2.6 in the testing debain branch)
whith this kernel the machine crashes sotimes whith such messages:

as those servers are now 500 km away from my office, remotely upgrading 
the kernel is somewhat risky. So I  would like to know wich 2.6 kernel I 
shoud use safely on these computer.
Any experience report would help me.

Thanks in advance
