    There are a *stack* of various software dependencies to go to kernel 2.6,
    such as for the "modprobe" package. There's a nice set of RPM's built by
    "arjanv" at RedHat on an FTP/HTTP site there, and I'd recommend hopping to
    Fedora Core 1 to be able to use a 2.6 kernel without updating a stack of
    other components.
