What's the "2.4.11" kernel?  I think that there is no
such beast exists, and will not exists for at least
some months...  There is only 2.4testN, i.e. pre-2.4.
Redhat 7.0 ships with something like 2.2.16-22, and
included 2.4-0.something -- maybe this is what you
have?  And maybe things go well on 2.4-tobe kernel?
(I tried with 2.2.17, 2.4 is still not an option for
our applications).
