I run 2.2.18pre21 on my firewall.  It has been known to be 
stable and secure.  Unless you like recompiling your kernel 
2 or 3 times a month I wouldn't look to 2.4 for a FIREWALL 
kernel yet.  If you want the neat features of 2.4 I would 
recomend installing 2.2 on the firewall and another box on 
the internal network with 2.4
