Stick with 2.2.16 - you'll be better off.  Just recompile the kernel for
sound support.

Try to avoid 2.4.x and 2.3.x.  They are the current development series,
and have huge problems right now (mostly with disk performance).  It's
best to avoid them unless you want to get into some really fancy firewall
rules on a router running Linux.  Trust me - I speak from experience.
