Glad to hear that!
And without breaking stride:
Time to break stuff again!! Buahahaha.....

Nice timing, I just moved a new edge kernel to the edge repository. If
this sounds confusing then it is perhaps because it is (confusing). The
"Edge" kernels are the sort of bleeding edge kernels that can be
installed alongside the more "normal" kernels. But this edge is (for
now) in the planetedge _repository_, not the normal planetcore

Anyway, it is 2.6.11-0.7.rdt.rhfc3.ccrma and is based on:
  2.6.11 +
  2.6.12-rc2 +
  realtime preempt 0.7.45-01
This is all garnished with a very nice:
  alsa version 1.0.9-0.3.rc2
sprinkled with tasty kernel modules for:
  2.6.10-2.1.ll, 2.6.11-0.3.rdt and 2.6.11-0.7.rdt

All this only available on fc3 for now. 

If you want to again mess up your machine you can if you point apt to
the planetedge repository. Use the same url as planetcore, only replace
planetcore with planetedge... Install planetccrma-core-edge or the more
bland but still filling planetccrma-core (or their smp versions). 

If I were you I'd just ignore this and make some music. 
Enjoy! (or not!)
