Dave, I still wish that FC would revert to the FC3 src.rpm structure
where the spec provided for a source rpm build. I suspect that the
number of users who wish to customize their kernel is growing and the
FC3 method seems much simpler (at least to me).

BTW, vanilla 2.6.12 (anecdotally) provides seemingly far superior ftp,
http, rsync download speeds in contrast to the distro kernel.
