I'm using rh7.3, rh8.0 and rh9.0

8 and 9 are running stock 2.4.21 + xfs patches and i'm getting fs corruption
7.3 is running the sgi-supplied redhat installer, and it runs flawlessly

The whole redhat 2.4.20 kernel is crap.  I've had a number of boxes lockup 
on it.  Initially it was the firewall, but then at home I've had other 
boxes lock up under load with it.  2.4.20-19.x got a little better but was 
still totally screwed up.  Going to a stock 2.4.20 fixed all the issues 
I've been having.

The root of this one is IMHO RH 2.4.20 is actually 2.4.21-pre3 plus a mass 
of patches.
