	I think there is still a conflict between the new kernel and the old
kudzu.  I don't think you can just excluded it.  I may be wrong...
IAC...  I worked around it by removing kudzu and the dozen or so things
that depended on it (didn't look like anything that would be
operationally fatal), then installed the new kernel and kernel-devel,
then rebooted, removed the older kernels, and finally reinstalled the
list of items I removed when I erased kudzu.

	Stand on your head and pat your belly.  This is going to be such fun if
and when it hits released updates for FC4.  :-/
