IBM x440

Hi everybody

Has ever some of you played with a debian and
an IBM X440 (the one with 4 Xeon 2.4 and the summit chip)

I'm trying since some days to make it boot with a 2.4.18
kernel from kernel.org.
I've applied some patch (summit etc...)
but i got always the kernel panic !
It happens when the kernel tries to
mount rootfs even if the scsi modules are present
by the initrd....

I know that summit is present in 2.5 kernel series.
But i'd like to know if it's possible to make it
boot with the 2.4.18 kernel

Thanx for all your good ideas !
