Best SMP kernel?

Just unpacked a Dual PII Dell Workstation, now I'm wondering
whether to try 2.0.34 or go the whole hog and use a 2.1
kernel (my first ever, oooh ;-). Comments ?

Is 2.1.105 a better bet than 108 ? I've heard noises about
maybe 106+ not being as stable, can anyone comment ?

(btw, I presume the README's etc. will tell me which packages
need to be upgraded etc. for a 2.1 installation?).


PS: first of all I have to stick another hard disk in there,
cos the U2W disks/adapter are just dead weight until the new
driver arrives (unless you count playing Quake II under NT ;o))
