I've considered it, but was afraid it wouldn't be stable enough.
Seems I was right ;)

If you're the kernel hacker type I think that the folks at linux-kernel
would be interested in the logs - if you get Oops or Panic output,
capture it using the serial console and decode it with ksymoops.

2.2.19 doesn't have high memory support or largefile support. It does
have SMP support and is really, really stable.

Andrea Archangeli has patches for highmem and LFS on 2.2, but I'm
not sure he updated it to 2.2.19 already. I think that stopped at
2.2.18pre19. You might want to look at the SuSe or RedHat kernels
since supposedly they ship with 2.2 "enterprise" kernels that have
those features.
