Running a customized (stripped) little from kernel.org under
Lenny since Oct 3, on an old dual 550MHz i440BX board.  Fairly stripped
down install running a Postfix mail firewall and Lighty.  Been running
great, no issues.  I've probably got everything stripped out that was on
the kernel team's "buggy" list. ;)  My vmlinuz is only 1.1MB and all my
drivers (two--disk and NIC) are compiled in.  I actually went so far as
to strip module support completely out of the kernel.  No initramfs, no
this, no that.  Pretty lean and mean kernel.
