I did exactly the same thing, for the same reason (Win4Lin), with no
problems. I got the 2.6.9 source from, applied the Win4Lin
patches (there are two, plus an optional patch to allow you to turn
REGPARM on which must normally be turned off in a Win4Lin-enabled
kernel), copied the Fedora config (config-2.6.9-1.681_FC3) to .config,
then built and installed normally. Not a single hiccup. I did make a few
minor changes to the .config, such as optimizing for my hardware,
turning on AX.25 support, etc, but nothing major.

In what way did your compile fail?
