The appletalk module is present in the Fedora kernel.
[dyoung at dyoung ~]$ find /lib/modules/`uname -r`/ -name appletalk.ko
I think you're thinking of the CentOS kernel, regarding kernel-unsupported.
Plus, you might not even need that. AFP (Apple Filing Protocol?) works
fine over IP network w/o Appletalk, you just lose the Appletalk browsing
(i.e. service discovery). If you use afp://server/share URLs on the
clients, it works just fine using the stock kernel on the server.
