Alright, well I will have to try and re-compile a kernel I guess.

Turns out that earlier my firewire dongle was not pushed in all the way. 
I fixed that and now if I try to boot with my STB connected to the 
system it hard locks up during boot, if I unplug the STB and plug it 
back in after my system has booted then it locks up as soon as I plug 
in. So..... that sucks, there is a kernel oops on the screen but its not 
getting logged to syslog so I don't have anyway to cut and paste it.

Anyway, I'll report back if I can successfully rebuild a fedora kernel. 
In the past I haven't had much luck doing that. Its much easier on 
slackware or gentoo.
