Thanks Ben,  I got it yesterday but I'm having nasty troubles with my SCSI
subsystem and I don't think I can work with it immediately.
One of my SCSI disks is dying with I/O errors symptoms and my Magneto-Optical
drive used to transfer huges files from my lab to my home freezes the SCSI
chain every now an then :(
I hope to fix these problems asap, then I will build new bootdisks based on
your kernel images.
