Hi Fernando -

I'm on FC3 using with only a few caveates
mentioned previously with respect to the HDSPmixer.  I would love to
upgrade but both kernels fail to boot for me, stopping at:

Uncompressing kernel...OK
audit {XXXX:XXX} initialized

...that's the message approzimately as there seems to be no record in
the boot log or dmesgs.  I'll take a closer look at the kernel
changelog and see if anything sticks out.
Could this be a hardware thing, mobo/chipset?  My setup:

ASUS P4GE-V mobo (ICH4 bridge)
P4 2.4
