Weird... the install did not complain of anything?
(apt-get install planetccrma-core-edge)
What kernels do you have? Do this:
  rpm -q kernel

The docs are a bit out of date. To see what kernels are available from
the repository you have configured:
  apt-get install kernel
check the ones that have rhfc4.ccrma in the release field. 

For fc4 there are some newer kernels available but are in a different
repository (they are more experimental).
