Yeah, last time I did this I didn't rpm-ize the kernel, and that saved
me quite a bit of work. I snagged the .config file out of Fedora, but
didn't grab any patches.

Since you guys seem determined to speculate about what feature I need,
it's the new scheduler, CFS, which appeared in 2.6.23.

Fedora on a big production cluster? Not a chance.
