the ac kernels?  go to your favorite linux kernel archive, like us.kernel.org.
it's something like:

cd /pub/linux/kernel/people/alan/v2.4/

i just did that from memory, so it may not be totally correct.   but it looks
about right.  anyway, you'll see a bunch of patches.

btw, most distros use the ac kernel.  chances are you're running one right
