Maybe the 2.4.18-4 based kernel is a better option. I have a database 
server running it here and it multitasks a bit smoother then the previous 
2.4.9-31 that was installed.

Stability was not a problem with 2.4.9 but 2.4.18 squeezes a bit more out 
of the machine.

Just make sure you use at least the XFS 1.1 release. And if you still want 
something newer the remade xfs 2.4.19 split patches will do nicely. The 
original split patches had a bug in them.

So far 2.4.19 seems to be well behaved on the border router/squid/web 
server it's running as well as a testbox in our office.


It might just be your lucky day, if you only knew.
