341The default Alpha profile uses nptl and requires a 2.6 kernel. If your system
342cannot support nptl (or you do not want to use nptl), you should use the 2.4
343kernel. Alternatively, if you prefer to compile your system without nptl, you
344will be given the chance to select a stage built without nptl in <uri
