[Fwd: Re: 2.4 kernel as default boot kernel on CD #1 ??]

I used "reply" rather than "reply to list" by mistake.

I don't think that using the 2.4 kernel changes the way the install
works.  I think that using a 2.2 kernel is a bad decision.  Move forward
to 2.4.

Many of the rest of us DO care, and I move that this issue be brought up
with the technical committee.  If they say that I cannot make a formal
motion due to not being (currently) an official Debian maintainer, then
someone who is please step forward and carry this motion.

The 2.4 kernel is quite stable and the install using it works just fine
as far as I can tell.
