Actually rebooting the system brought /proc back to a usable state. 
Something within the kernel bit it.  That was just the symptom. (Might
have taken /sys as well, but I did not check.)

And I have read the kernel docs.

BTW, I have noticed a few interesting differences between the arjan
2.6.1 and the Fedora devel 2.6.1.  I assume the Fedora development
version is the "preferred" version, even though it has a earlier version

ALSA took a slight bit of hacking, but is working. I noticed that the
arjan version has the OSS modules built as well.  I kind of like having
the OSS modules not built since it forced me to configure correctly. 
Hopefully the sound cards get configured correctly on install.
