Don't deviate, dumb-ass. :-) Flipped back to 2.6.8-1.521 and the module 
provided. Everything works fine now. Playing back 720x480, 8000kbps 
video with the processor about 20% user, 35% system, 45% idle.

Looks like the Unichrome DRM module doesn't work with 2.6.9, or at 
least Red Hat's version of it.

Never mind. The Nov 16th package set is fine.
