Hi Joe. The only time I had the "Transaction check failed" was with doing the 
updates after installing FC3. An apt-get dist-upgrade brought up that error, 
but doing an apt-get upgrade first resolved that problem. This is obviously 
not your problem. I'm trying a download for the kernel you want at the 
moment, but have selected in synaptic the kernel alsa module, which picks up 
the kernel you want, and another one for some reason. Be carefull to check 
the version of the kernel alsa modules, and which kernels they are going to 
download with it. The 4 kernel alsa modules all appear the same on the 
synaptic list. The first one on the list seems to match up with the kernel 
you want, and is the one I'm downloading on dialup at the moment.

It's also worth looking at /var/cache/apt/archives/partial . If you have lost 
your Internet connection while updating, there may be a partially downloaded 
package there. An apt-get dist-upgrade should pick that up, and complete the 
download, thus clearing the way for future downloads.

70% done on kernel#2.6.16-1.2069_FC4, thats the extra one, and no idea why 
thats being installed as well. Nigel.
