Not a problem in the least for me right now. I won't actually be using
anything since all I can run Jack on right now is the on-board sound
chip. However, I wanted to look over Ardour's new 'narrow mixer'
interface. I've been back working on Pro Tools this week and have really
seen that value of very many little user interface features they have. I
want to review Ardour and then make a report to the Ardour group for
their consideration.

I will go ahead with the update then. I presume that I do not need to
remove the test drive kernel first? This machine currently has

2.4.18-14            -- stock RH 8.0
2.4.19-1.ll          -- standard Planet kernel
2.4.20-1.12.ll.acpi  -- test drive kernel

and will then get a fourth kernel. No problems doing this?

Thanks! I'll wait for your messages.
