I tried to boot our main web server on it tonight. Strangely, it makes it through the actual kernel boot but goes apeshit when it starts running init scripts, and it doesn't blow up the same way consistantly. Sometimes it outputs the init scripts to the console, sometimes it complains about random syntax errors in the scripts (which all work find under 2.2.x) and sometimes it silently fails and just doesn't do things, like mount file systems, enable the interface, start named and apache, etc. Does 2.4 require a change to init?
