    I've never done IPSec, but plain use of 2.4.18-3 does work with Red Hat
    7.1. Note that you'll need to either satisfy the dependencies by
    upgrading some packages from Red Hat 7.3, or use --nodeps. Both work in
    my experiences.

    However, note that:
    + 2.4.18-3 has a data corruption bug with ext3 on SMP systems, fixed in
    + 2.4.18-4 (and -3) has weird NFS problems which are fixed in 2.4.18-5
    + 2.4.18-[345] have security problems which are fixed in 2.4.18-10
    (By the way, does anyone know if new 2.4.9-xx or 2.2.xx kernels are
    coming from Red Hat to fix these holes for those releases? Or have
    earlier Red Hat kernels (and releases) just been abandoned? Or are
    they just not affected?)
