    Yup, I downloaded it yesterday..

    I must say I havn't ran into any trouble yet..

    just a

    cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.21
    cp ../linux-2.4.20/.config .
    make oldconfig
    make menuconfig (just to check out some new stuff)
    make dep && make modules -j4 && make modules_install install
    reboot

    Yep I just built myself it last night, And it seems to be working fine
    Heres the output of uname -a
    Linux Godfather 2.4.21Cheesegoduk #3 Sun Jun 15 00:21:06 BST 2003 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

    To add the extra bit after the 2.4.21 bit where I have cheesegoduk, Edit the makefile in the kernel source where it says EXTRAVERSION= Just type what you want to appear there.(Thanks to redgore for telling me this)
