Is there a general howto on linux optimization (kernel 2.6)

No. The kernel defaults to settings that generally perform reasonably well on most workloads and hardware, without causing particularly bad performance on any particular workload and hardware combination. In order to optimize beyond the defaults, you need some idea of what the server is doing. Most optimization guides are written for specific applications, and assume you have hardware typical for those applications. They're a good place to start, but if you're using substantially different hardware (say, running Oracle on a laptop) not all of the assumptions will apply. Ultimately, you need to test each parameter to be sure, but the application tuning guides will tell you which parameters matter.
