Well, making the 2.6 kernel optional (maybe through apt) without requiring 
to add a new repository would help. I would consider adding Arjan's 
packages to FC1 as too experimental ('as there must be a reason why Fedora 
doesn't add it, right ?')

Adding it to the updates (or testing) would probably reach a bigger target 
group. The next release could default to 2.6 and optionally 2.4 (for 
hardware or software that worked on 2.4 but doesn't on 2.6 anymore)

It's a small difference (maybe even psychological), but if you want to 
test it in advance, the more people/hardware you can test it on, the 
better the next release will integrate.
