Hrmm.. the problem I am having with the 2.6.22.x-xx series of kernels 
seems to be with all of the machines here, not just my backend system.  
I can't get any of them to boot off of it. :(  I *thought* I had one 
machine booting off of it successfully, but I just did a vanilla 
installation of FC7, completed a yum -y update, rebooted, and watched 
the system panic. :(

I was hoping to locate an older 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 ivtv RPM so I could 
get my backend updated to FC7 (and which would, in an indirect way, 
correct a display issue I am having with my backend where running 
mythtv-setup locks up the machine) and make the necessary 
schedulesdirect.org changes.  Ugh.. it's like a bad catch-22.

Anyhow, since this is off-topic of the list, I'll dig elsewhere to see 
if I can get any traction on finding an ivtv rpm.. either that, or I'll 
put together a build environment to build the ivtv rpm..
