Due to nptled glibc I can't use pure 2.4.x kernels only redhat kernels
or 2.6.x. I tried use kernels from atrpms but all fedora and rh9 kernel
failed to compile, for example :

2.6.x kernels (exclude 2.6.0-test11) hang after a while (2.6.0 after 3-7
days, 2.6.1 and higher after 30 minutes). Once I have caught a problem
on 2.6.0 - it "forgot" about mount points. It is necessary to note that
all xfsed kernels (fedora, RH9, RHEL and 2.6.x) works fine in 32-bit mode.

It would be wonderful.
