What type of system? If it's a sparc32 (sun4m, sun4c, ...), then stick
with 2.2.x, because 2.4.x just wont run well right now.

If you're talking about an UltraSPARC, I say go for the latest 2.4.x
(2.4.7 right now), as it is much more stable, especially on high end
systems. HOWEVER, you will need to upgrade some packages on potato to
work with 2.4.x. One main thing is modutils (you can recompile the
package if you want, and I can give you quick instructions for
rebuilding the package on potato). There may be others.
