Hmmm, no, not really. 
What hardware do you have? Must be fairly new... I'm working on a based rt kernel that should be out shortly, hopefully that will
support your network interface. I could also release a based
one, should be the same as the Fedora one re: hardware support (unless
the support is in a patch that clashes with the rt patch).
