nah - you can just download a debian kernel-source-2.4.20 deb from any
mirror and then install it with dpkg. It will then appear in /usr/src
and you can build it using make-kpkg. I'm running a 2.4.20 kernel fine
on one of our servers at work which is a standard woody machine.

We have one of those 600SC servers also - but I've left it running
redhat since I was a bit afraid of trying to get the ide raid card
working under debian. Did you get a raid card with it? If so any
problems getting it to work under debian?
