        I would agree with you that 2.2.15 should be the default
 kernel. But we can include a 2.4 kernel in potato, perhaps with a
 warning in the long description that people should use it with
 caution, and with a lilo backup kernel in place.

        I've been running 2.3 kernels for a while now, and so have
 several people. Though it may not work as a default ekrnel,
 espescially for laptop users, it can be useful for a lot of people
 out there.  I think it would be in keeping with the social contract
 that we offer people a *choice*
