It is possible, provided you have ALSA installed for your other kernel.
Almost all the apps in Planet CCRMA require ALSA to be installed, and
properly configured if you want them to be useful for anything.

Yes. I do not provide ALSA kernel modules for the standard Fedora Core 1
kernels but other repositories do. Check Freshrpms, Dag and Atrpms, I
think they have ALSA kernel modules for the standard kernels. If you
manage to get the proper ALSA kernel module installed and have alsa-lib
installed then Planet CCRMA packages should install...
