In my limited experience, it is much easier and just as fruitful
to compile the official kernel rather than the Fedora one.
(I used to have to do this to get orinoco_usb working.)
I never found anything in the Fedora changes to the official kernel
that I seemed to require.

A well-written tool should work on either.

No, I don't *need* another kernel. But I'm not a n00b (hopefully that's not a pejorative, it's not meant as such), and I like to explore the kernel options and see what's out there. I'd like to have a way to just press a button and make it happen, after setting my options - and to know at a glance which options do what, which are dangerous, etc., etc. Just seems like one of the things that is perfectly suited to a nice graphical interface.
