[PlanetCCRMA] MIDI on PlanetCCRMA?

I upgraded an old PlanetCCRMA installation to FC10, but I can't figure 
out how to get USB MIDI devices to work (I'm testing with an M-Audio 
Midiman 2x2.) I found some old instructions, but "yum install hotplug 
hotplug-gtk" says these packages don't exist, and I can't look in 
/etc/modules.conf because it doesn't exist either. cat 
/proc/asound/cards shows one sound card and no midi devices. On the 
other hand, flash drives automount and open very nicely. Can someone 
tell me how to set this up or point to some documentation? Should I be 
using Fedora 9?

Also, a note on Planet CCRMA documentation: I followed low-latency 
kernel instructions here
but the low-latency kernel crashed on my machine. I'm still looking into 
this, but the BIG problem was that an install via Fedora 10 Live CD sets 
the grub.conf "timeout" to 0, so if the kernel fails, you get to reboot 
from the CD and figure out how to edit a file named 
-boot/grub/grub.conf. (The "-" in "-boot" doesn't make it easy). The 
instructions should say before "Testing the new kernel":

As root, edit /boot/grub/grub.conf: Change the line "timeout=0" to 
"timeout=10" so that you will be able to select the kernel you want to boot.
