I wouldn't either.. I'm in the process of re-doing the TLDP kernel build guide and
FC5 is the primary platform I'm using to test. There are lots of changes between the
stock kernel and the FC5 kernel that default accepting/continuing will not resolve.
Some are code tweaks requiring patches. At this point it's a matter of taking the
fc5 sources trying to apply the patchsets from 2.6.18 to 2.6.19.
