IME the vanilla kernel (2.6.9 anyway; I haven't tried 2.6.10 yet) works
well enough with Fedora.

FWIW, if you end up going with 2.6.9, then after you get vanilla 2.6.9
working, you may want to try a 2.6.9-ac kernel (e.g. 2.6.9-ac16). IIRC
2.6.9-ac is more up-to-date in terms of security fixes than vanilla
2.6.9, and the ac patches are less invasive than the Fedora ones so it's
easier to merge them with 3rd-party patches. (At least, that's my
experience.)
