Because of a recent crash (the first ever using linux on this hardware,
using 2.4.18 through 2.4.20), i went in search of these release notes. I
feel really stupid here, but i can't find them, not on, google, umm?

The crash in question was while copying between hard disks (both on the
RAID controller) a directory tree of MP3s, about 95megs. I was in X at
the time so i couldn't see any errors if there was some, and the machine
totally locked up, tried pinging it etc, didn't work.
Can't find any errors in logfiles or anything.

The .config for the kernel was identical to my 2.4.20 config that has
never crashed, except it has IDE Taskfile IO enabled, because from the
help this seemed like a good thing.

Do you want me to provide debugging info on this? It's okay if not, i'll
just wait until stuff works in the main stable kernel :)
