Distros Using 2.4 Kernel


I'm looking for a few distros that still use the 2.4 kernel. The reason being that how ever the 2.6 kernel handles usb crashes my system very nicely. Im currently using debian. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Damn Small still uses the 2.4 kernel.

Arch's old CDs have a 2.4 kernel, but the distro recently dropped support for it.

Do you know what version of Arch uses 2.4?

The newest version has the 2.4 kernel available on the cd, what I think xpromisex means is that there aren't offical updates to the 2.4 kernel package. If you install the package called kernel24 off the newest cd you'll be able to use the 2.4 kernel. Other than that there's no reason to install a older version, since each version is just a what's in the offical repositories at the time of release.
