I just recompiled the debian's 2.0.43 with --without-sendfile (push it
in the args list of debian/rules) and now www.sixxs.net works fully on
IPv4/IPv6 and IPv4-SSL and IPv6-SSL.

As for the hardware in that box, Linux 2.4.18, Celeron, IDE, ext3 fs's
and a:

eth0: RealTek RTL8139 Fast Ethernet at 0xd0800000, 00:10:dc:20:7c:7c,
IRQ 11
eth0:  Identified 8139 chip type 'RTL-8139B'

purgatory.unfix.org has 2.4.18, p100, IDE, ext3 and a Intel and DEC, but
IPv6 is tunneled and doesn't have that problem.
games.concepts.nl box has 2.4.19-pre5-ac3, Athlon, SCSI, ext3 and a
3c905C, this one doesn't have any problems.

I'll be running that first box with --without-sendfile :)

If you need extra informations don't mind to speak up.

Greets,
 Jeroen
