Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 28724
nmap can't identify 2.3.x/2.4.x kernels

see subject. nmap doesn't properly identify kernels beyond 2.2.16.
This is actually a feature. not a bug. It prevents people from guessing what
kind of machine it is. Consider it a security enhancement.
I failed to mention that this is a kernel feature, not a crippled nmap.
