Greetings ...

 I for one would like to vote for rpms of vanilla kernel build!

 I have an Adaptec ASR-3410S, which is an i2o device, but since 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6, I can't use it and the i2o maintaner suggests I try a vanilla kernel build to see if it's an FC kernel problem or a general problem, but I don't have the skill to build a bootable kernel, let alone give good debug info.
