Thanks. I was blind.

This will take while. I'll get back to you.

Sure. Possibly.

Nominally it just requires a linux link to the kernel source. I guess
I could try:

cd /usr/src
ln -s /lib/modules/2.6.10-2.1.ll.rhfc3.ccrma linux

Seem OK? 

I'll give it a try. nice that the headers or whatever is supplied with
the kernel now.
