To the original poster: I believe that difference between distributions on
the level we are talking now (how to make sound work?) is really not
important. However, one thing to note, I am not sure what is the situation
now in RedHat world, but compilation of kernel is in Debian not that big
deal, because of make-kpkg. I mean, I do not want to say, that you cannot
compile kernel in FC*, but in Debian (and *ubuntu, etc.) it is so easy!
