The AT kernels provide (as far as my knowledge serves me) additional 
featues (e.g. xfs support) that are supported by FC2 natively, so you 
won't need that (I didn't anyway).
As for the ivtv driver - this is more complicated. You will have to use 
a patched ivtv-driver, change one of the c-codes and fiddle around with 
the rest to get it working - but rest assured, it works! I posted a few 
questions here, the answers definitely helped solve the problems, so do 
a search useing my name "verteiler" as parameter. It should get your box 
up and running.

If not, you know where to ask ;)
