    Raidzone does not ship a "stock" kernel but a kernel with a lot of changes
    including changes to make their binary only modules possible (the legality
    of this is left as an excercise to the reader).

    You really shouldn't be running a 2.4.16 kernel (not without the latest
    security patches for such a kernel from a distro) given the amount of security issues
    fixed since... and since I don't think any distro ever shipped 2.4.16 (some
    shipped 2.4.17, a bunch shipped 2.4.18 but even RH doesn't do patches for
    that 2.4.18 tree anymore since they have been obsoleted by 2.4.20 and newer
    kernels).
