Of course not.  You can use any system as the server.  When you say
"standard installation instructions" what does that mean exactly?
More importantly, which kernel did you use and where did it come from?

It depends.  If this kernel is a newish 2.4 kernel or current CVS 2.2,
then yes, the dumps are needed to solve the problem.  If this is an
old or ancient kernel you might want to send the dumps anyway but most
people will ignore you.
