Yes we do - we support both 2.0 and 2.2 kernels (We've not tested on the
kernels yet, but if the current version doesn't work under it the next
version certainly
will.) We also support libc5, glibc2 and glibc2.1, though we're planning on
libc5 after version 6.2. 

(Are there still a lot of libc5 sites out there? We don't see a ton of
downloads for it)

Most of our development is on Linux, and our pool has 249 (and growing)
machines, so it's certainly an important platform for us :)
