Sorry for getting back later in the day on this.  I didn't get a chance to test it till now.

> 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

And I compiled the nvidia drivers, which I gently spread on top of it.

>From a few quick tests this kernel seems as good or better then the last one.

I did my standard quick test of running qjackctl-jack, then alsaplayer.  This while playing "Worlds of Warcraft" (a windows multiplayer online game) in a 1024x768 window(we have big monitors here) running under wine.  I then drag the window around the screen while running the game in it(open gl graphics stand up well here too), and the audio system stands up very well with no xruns at 1.5 msec latencey.  I was also able to get it to work at sub-msec latencey, which is a little better then the last kernel.  This is one of the better stress tests I've found.

Thanks Fernando.
