There have been many changes between 2.4 and 2.6 in how config options are
named, how they depend on eachother, what the defaults are etc. A copied 2.4
config is unlikely to do the right thing with 2.6. Try taking the time to do
a full, proper configuration of 2.6.

we downloaded the rc2 ? version of linuxppc-2.5-benh  linux-2.6.6

and it still had issues. Re rsynced to a later version a day later and
all our issues disappeared.

was getting frustrated but ended up being an issue with the released kernel (we think)
