    Part 1:

    Part 2:
    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, though I would recommend using the 2.6.10 source rather than the 2.6.11 source.
