Interesting. I would venture to say that it maybe specific to your
particular config options rather than those kernels. Which did you

FC4 shipped with a patched 2.6.11 kernel, since then I've compiled and
used multiple 2.6.12 vanilla kernels and toyed with 2.6.13 vanilla
kernels. I haven't found any problems preventing their usage (in
general) for FC4. I have and still working fine and
haven't had a need to try out 2.6.14 (yet).

I recall going through half a dozen vanilla kernels to get ACPI to
work on my system in FC3. They worked even though ACPI didn't.
