I think, in the current situation it would be best to create a small
repository with modified boot-floppies, needed to support particular
software/hardware. Someone may cry "just as SuSE does". Well, it's
better than force every user to patch and replace the kernel, causing
lots of other trouble. I suggest:

 - SCSI optimised (i2o scsi drivers, more SCSI drivers built-in)
 - IDE optimised (patched to support >>160GB disks, HPT-372 controlers, etc.)
 - XFS filesystem (this does actually work, p.d.o/~blade/XFS-Install)
 - EVMS enabled (EMVS with LVM/md in the kernel, evms curses gui on the
   rescue disk)
