so you want the -beta kernel *downgraded* ? Why don't you downgrade it 
yourself and put it on hold?

Please... remember we still call it *beta* because of this type of 
problem (did someone completely screw up ATA-cd-writing recently?) If 
you have a problem with the beta kernel switch back to a 2.4 kernel or 
roll your own and tell your experiences, but please don't barge in here 
requesting that we jump up for you... You *could* have told us that the 
2.6.9rc3 doesn't work for you !
