I can't find a bugzilla entry on this. Do you have the number?  As far
as I can tell, I'm running the i686 kernel:

Linux sds-desk.sterndata.com 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 #1 SMP Mon Oct 16
14:54:20 EDT 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

# rpm -qa |grep kernel
kernel-devel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6
kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6
kernel-headers-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6

# ll /usr/src/kernels
total 4
drwxr-xr-x 18 root root 4096 Oct 26 00:01 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6-i686

I did not compile the kernel myself, but I am compiling madwifi from source.
