know what part of the thread was directed towards me)

I agree about the stability of the 2.6 kernels. The system I'm using now
has always been 2.6 since I first installed it. I have noticed there were
stability issues with 2.6. I remember 2.6.7 was fairly good and was a bit
stable. wasn't that stable (I'm sure I had the .1 patch on it,
however, attempting to do a lock over NFS caused the system to hard freeze).
2.6.9 was more unstable especially with USB. 2.6.10 (which I'm using now)
has to be IMO the most stable 2.6 kernel produced. I'm quite pleased with
it (and to all the kernel hackers, thanks for a great kernel).

P.S. System is a dual xeon 2.6ghz on a supermicro x5da8 1gb ram.
