[Sorry Fernando for polluting you mailbox with my earlier replies, I had 
missed the Reply-to-Sender setting of the list]

To sum up:
- following your advice and Matt Marian's, I installed FC4.
- then I failed to find the planetccrma-core package in the repos, so I 
tried planetccrma-core-edge.
- after rebooting, I got a kernel panic.
- I then searched more with apt-cache, and found and installed 
kernel-2.6.12-0.9.rdt.rhfc4.ccrma.i686.rpm, which I hope is the right 
non-edge kernel.

So I guess now I'm all set for the kernel part.
