Great. Relatively straight forward. I must say you are one organized guy...

I see three potential 'bleeding edge' kernels - the one you referenced 
ending with .1vP9.rhfc2.ccrma, but also two others - .1vP0 and .1vQ3. Do 
I still want .1vP9 as referenced in your emails?

Once these (kernel and matching Alsa) are installed it is my 
understanding that I remove the planetedge option from sources.list?

Cool. Thanks.
