I know someone mentioned their good experiences with Planet CCRMA. I
also have had good experiences with it (running Fedora Core 3 and now
5). All the compiling and whatnot has already been done for you. The
CCRMA/FC5 version is even easier to install then CCRMA/FC3 and even
reorders your IRQs to favor the soundcard (that was the big one for me
because I just couldn't do it with the laptop and it would have been
tedious anyways).
