My measurements using the usual rt test (cyclictest) showed that the 3.x 
rt kernels were not yet up to the low latency levels of 2.6.33.x, but 
they seemed to be better than the stock Fedora kernel. If you have rtirq 
installed everything should be automatically set for you (I hope :-) You 
could check to see what priority is jack starting with, should be 60 if 
I remember correctly.
