The newest ac is always what is recommended. Right now that is
2.4.10-ac11. You will need linux-2.4.10.tar.bz2 and

That code is very stable and has Rik's VM. It should have the newest
netfilter code -- Alan is very up to date.

This isn't to say not to use Linus's tree, though. You may want to give
2.4.12 a try, too.
