   It's OK if you're not totally clear. I'm sure I'm not being totally
clear also.

   Since I wrote that first note I've run synaptic. It's showing I've
got the alsa-kernel-2.4.20-20.l.caps.rh90 marked in total red. I guess
that probably means it's so old it isn't supported anymore? I also have
two other alsa-kernel's installed - 2.4.21-1.ll.acpi and
2.4.22-6.ll.rh90, which I think I'm running. 

   I uninstalled the two old kernels and now I'm not getting these
messages, so I guess that's what the message was instructing me to do.

   Have a great weekend, and thanks!
