what problems do you have with the CCRMA kernel? i guess it doesn't
boot after you install it??? can you tell us a bit more?

ardour is great, still beta, but quite stable for me at the moment.

i use the apt-enabled RH cd's so that all redhat packages are also in
the apt repository, and not only the CCRMA packages (this is as i

internet connection. it works great.
