on an MSI KT6V board.

Running FC3 plus the Planet.  It is my day-to-day work machine, so it
is usually running xterms and Firefox.  But I haven't had any trouble
running Planet apps now and again, although I haven't tried anything
CPU intensive (I think).  But nothing has crashed so far.  Timestamp on
/etc/fedora-release says it was installed Nov 1.

I did do an hour of 96kHz/24-bit input->Jack->output pass through
last week without problems using my Delta 44.  Dunno of that says

Memory brand I should check, don't know off hand.  I have a SATA disk
(that's why I need FC2 or FC3, FC1 doesn't even see the controller).
