The 2.4.25 kernel works with the standard mesh scsi but not with my adaptec
card to boot from. So I thought I would go with the 2.6.7 + initrd.
 I can use BootX but a Linux only system is better ;-). And since the new
debian installer chooses 2.6 as default it should work with oldworld.

Tahnks chris.
