I am running Fedora Core 1 on a hush Epia-M10000 machine. I _HAD_ to
roll my own kernel with video driver patches:

	- the patches applied to the Fedora kernel src rpm weren't working

	- I wanted to benefit from the 2.6.x kernel speed increase, on a 1Ghz
machine any speed increse is more important than on a 2.x Ghz machine.

The video stuff is stable and performing quite well so my next update of
kernel will be when I change to FC 2.

Hope that helps
