Hmmm... I've never had a problem with Fedora 10 (and the corresponding 
Planet CCRMA install). Read on about how to deal with Kernel problem...

I don't know all the issues you're having, but as far as dealing with 
your kernel being changed, this is what you do to remedy that...

Edit the contents of the '/boot/grub/grub.conf' file (you have to be 
root). If you count down each 'title Fedora' until you come to the one 
that lists the RT Kernel, then you put that number in the "default=" 
area. Counting starts at zero. So even (for example) if the RT Kernel is 
the ninth one, then you put "default=8".

As you probably know, you will want to make a backup of this file first 
to be safe. Once, edited, reboot your computer.

Hope this helped,
