I am looking for a Linux distro with 2.4 kernel, that can run Gnome.

Can't seem to find anything. Please provide links to iso files also.

2.4?! What kind of distro are you looking for? (Don't say GNOME, it's in most distros) – Tom Wijsman Mar 1 '13 at 22:30
@TomWijsman: Any debian based distro would be cool. I know Ubuntu does not have a 2.4 release. I have no bias otherwise as long as it has a GNOME environment – Bruce Mar 1 '13 at 22:32
By '2.4' I think you mean kernel 2.4... why do you need it? – Renan Mar 1 '13 at 22:33
As in, Linux kernel version 2.4? CentOS 3.9 was the last version to contain a 2.4.x kernel. But why are you trying to do this? – allquixotic Mar 1 '13 at 22:33
Please explain exactly what you want to do, and why. Running some experimental version of Linux in anger isn't for newbies... – vonbrand Mar 2 '13 at 1:48

Stop trying to use ancient software right now.

MPLS-Linux is a current (3.x) Linux kernel with MPLS support.

this version does not have firewall support which I need. – Bruce Mar 2 '13 at 0:03

Every major distribution shipped (still does) with Gnome. It's harder to find a mainstream distribution that does not include Gnome. If you need a suggestion, Slackware is like a time machine when it comes to finding old software.
