If I understand the README in Petr's 2.4.27 aranym kernel image tarball
right, you will need to apply one patch, plus drop three new files in the
appropriate places in the kernel tree. I'll definitely try to boot a stock
Debian kernel though, as well as boot a Linus 2.4.33 kernel.
Petr: your warning about disabling swap because of stram swap problems
perhaps isnt necessary anymore. stram_swap=0 in the boot options already
disables the use of stram for swapping (no trace of stram in /proc/swaps).
