I did have 2.4.18 running fairly stable, but it froze from time to time, so
I went back to 2.2.20.

I finished the build of 2.4.20 from CVS (competing against gcc-snapshot).
It is available at:

Untested, since I do not have physical access to my box for a few more days.
This kernel-image includes devfs support, I assume you need to install some

I will try to build a mac image next (since I have a mac waiting at home).
