The question "Would doing that improve realtime audio" ...
is one I'd like to know more about.  I'm using KDE, liking it
very much and wondering how to make it lean or switch if I need 
to.  How dependent is the need on processor? on memory?

Also the business of installing rpm's when using Planet is not
clear to me and I was just about to ask about installing 
non-Planet rpms when I saw this thread.  But I'll ask about that  
in a new thread.
