2.4.18-14

It is the kernel version, that gets installed by default, when you
install Red Hat 8.0 (you don't need to find it - it's there, in the Red
Hat installation CD's).

AFTER the installation of the SAP WAS Test Drive, you can connect to RHN
(via the Red Hat System Updater) and upgrade the OS kernel to its latest
version (2.4.18-27.8.0).
