   If you're up for trying it, I have managed to get what appears ot
be a very nice kernel built on top of FC2. I think that the newest
kernels, 2.6.9 based, are going to work out pretty well when they
stabilize. If you haven't been able to boot a 2.4 Planet kernel on
this machine then it would seem that maybe going to FC2 would be a
better choice?

   What sourd of sound card are you working with.
