Sorry, rereading my reply I feel I was not clear enough. The RH9 kernel
2.4.20-8 has more serious security issues than you have fingers on one
hand! It is the kernel version RH9 originally shipped with years ago.
Even during the period when Red Hat himself released security update
kernels that beast should have been kicked long time ago.
