Don't mind at all.. The machine thats hosts
lists/browsers/directory.evolt.org is currently a redhat 6.2 machine
running the 2.2.19 kernel.

I'm upgrading it to redhat 7.2 and the 2.4.14 kernel today.. Part of the
reason is some of the libraries on that machine need to get upgraded so
I can upgrade other things, and part is because 2.4 is faster and more
stable, and part is to get XFS on the machine, and part is to bring it
in line with the other evolt.org servers, 5 of which also run a 2.4
kernel.(a relay server is still 2.2 and another relay server is openbsd)
four of those five run XFS as well.

hope that answers any questions, shout if not :)
