[PlanetCCRMA] Sulfur: works out of the box

For helping with the testing I installed Fedora 9 in my laptop and I
can say that everything worked pretty well too. The only downsides
I've found are Firefox 3 being slow for scrolling and not compatible
with the extensions I use. I installed the CCRMA kernel and it boots
and seems to work fine but Power Manager is not started and the
wireless led doesn't work. The Fedora 9 kernel seems to provide a nice
power management as it is able to dim my screen light when running
with battery power and it even dims it more when idle (Mac style).
I'll keep testing.
