ok, and what kind of machine is it? depending on the model i could find
a 450 mhz cpu..., or, if that is any better, i have a U10@450mhz with 
512Mb ram and two reasonable fast disks that i could theoretically spare

can't find it now but wasn't someone offering a much faster machine just
a few weeks ago?

hmm, what kind of stability issues are this? i run 2.6.12 and
2.4.something on two machines and never encountered any problems...
