Go to http://atrpms.physik.fu-berlin.de/name/kernel/ and get the
kernel for RH 9, 8.0 or 7.3.

You can take the src.rpm from atrpms and rip out lvm/3ware/i2c/v4l2
updates to get a vanilla RH & XFS 1.3.0 kernel. It has also some other
nice sideeffects like automatically adding stuff to any
kernel-*.config etc. making future upgrade less painfull.

RH and SGI's XFS patches for RH are the base ingredients for atrpms'
kernels ;)

There are already rawhide kernels (2.4.22-1.2040.nptl) with (only) XFS
1.3.0 patched in for the really brave among you at atrpms. Contact me
for getting the URL (Eric already has it), but use it only for
filesystems worth about the same as /dev/null. That kernel has been
remotely built and not tested by me at all (I am currently on the road).
