I am building such a kernel package. One question that is raised here is:
If a prepackaged kernel is supplied with modules and support for virtual
hosting, firewalling, etc. how does that affect the performance for users
that don't need such features?

The one I am building is 2.0.29 for a machine which serves as a firewall,
gateway, and virtual ftp/http server. The virtual apache can be handy even
on a local network. I have used it before so macs, win, and linux clients
could browse http://server/docs/ and websites could be emulated locally
for test purposes. The caching proxy server feature of apache is nice,
also.

I would appreciate any input from people re what they need most in special
kernels. I could also use a good www survey/voting package if anybody has
recommendations.
