i am also very curious to know if that would be a feasible move.  i
have a system very similar to yours (P3 733) and have been running FC1
CCRMA very successfully for a while now (a year? two? i forget), but
i'd like to move to a 2.6 kernel and get some newer versions of
software easily.  does anyone have advice for us on moving to FC4 on
machines this old?
