Software update: Linux kernel 2.4.2

Kernel 2.4.2 stable is out. After a relatively short period of time and only four pre-patches, the kernel has already been declared stable.

Of course, this kernel can be used on all Linux platforms, not just i386. Moreover, it is stable and can therefore be downloaded and then installed without hesitation.
