To get to Fedora Core 5:

At the first Grub page, go to “Redhat”

On the second page, go to “Fedora Core”

If you get a message similar to: 
mount: "could not find filesystem '/dev/root'"
Do the following:
1) Boot with the rescue CD
2) Type 'chroot /mnt/sysimage' (wherever it mounts the Fedora 5 partition)
3) 'cd /boot'
4) 'mkdir newinit'
5) 'cd newinit'
6) 'gunzip -c ../initrd-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.img | cpio -idmv'
7) 'vi init'
8) Find 'mount /sysroot' (near the end of the file)
9) Delete or comment this out
10) Replace with 'mount -o defaults --ro -t ext3 /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /sysroot' where /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 is the mount point for /
11) ':wq' out of vi
12) 'find . | cpio --quiet -c -o >../newinitrd'
13) 'cd ..' - you are now in /boot
14) 'mv initrd-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.img initrd-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.bak' - backup current initrd img file (just in case)
15) 'gzip -9 < newinitrd > initrd-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.img'
16) Reboot the computer without the CD

External Audio/MIDI

modprobe configuration needs to be changed when adding USB MIDI interface or sound cards.

See “Installing Planet CCRMA” at: http://ccma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/software/node3.html

Look into Interrupt Priority (ardour mailing list archives?) and PCI latency issues
