    Saw a couple of good articles the other day on tuning Oracle for linux (kind of the reverse of what you're talking about, but useful anyway).

    Part 1: http://www.oracle.com/technology/ora...o_linux01.html

    Part 2: http://www.oracle.com/technology/ora...o_linux02.html
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    If you want a good kernel for a server, it needs to be a lightweight one, download the kernel source and configure it yourself, it should be as lightweight as possible, discarding any features that you don't need, and you should also configure it for your specific hardware, this will make it much faster than a preconfigured and precompiled kernel, at least in my experience. You can download the latest source at http://www.kernel.org/, though I would recommend using the 2.6.10 source rather than the 2.6.11 source.
