If you still want 2.4 kernel, and don't want to do the above compilations,
My system is ASUS K8V-X mobo, AMD64 2800+, with a solo SATA hard drive.
Here are all the things that I've tested:
Knopix Live CD: works out of the box.
Knopix Live CD, HD installation: works out of the box for kernel 2.4, no
work for kernel 2.6.
The most exciting fact is that, Debian Testing works out of the box:
$ uname -rm
Ubuntu also works out of the box.
NB, by "out of the box" I mean that I don't need to twist anything in
order to make it works.
Hope you are also lucky with the above
