    Someone has pointed out that the recommended 2.4.20 kernel has an ext3
    data corruption bug (which fortunately will not affect most users).

    The changset comments for the ext3 bug are at:
    <http://linux.bkbits.net:8080/linux-2.4/cset@1.793?nav=index.html|ChangeSet@-1d>

    Please be careful if updating to 2.4.20, or wait until 2.4.21.
