All the RHEL3 source rpms are available for download;
the Fedora Core userspace RPMs are most likely already
being compiled for AMD64.

We just need some volunteers to pull things together
and put the AMD64 patches from Taroon into Fedora Core
(which is more work than it sounds, because the Taroon
kernel is close to RHL9, while Fedora is closer to the
upstream 2.4 kernel).
