I'm a little confused about why one would want an experimental kernel
(the 2.5 series) for a secure operating system. We are working on
developing a security friendly Linux 2.5 kernel here
<http://lsm.immunix.org/> which is what I recomend. Compiling a stock
Linux kernel with the Immunix tools and the patches we provide for the
make files effectively just turns the tools off in the makefiles,
because the tools are not compatible with kernel code.

Is there something special you did to your kernel to make it run ont eh
DECserver 3000? If not, then I recomend using the LSM 2.5 kernel, as it
is actively maintained, and has a forward-path for security features.
