Yes, there are lots of nice things fixed in the ac series right now.
Definitely recommended if anyone wants to run the 2.4.0 kernel.

2.4.0 is on the RH 7.0 disc, and 2.3.something shiped on Caldera's
"Technology Prieview", but I bet it will be a number of months before
any distro ships _only_ the 2.4.x kernel.

If this WireX gig ever closes down, then I'll move to Debian, till then
I'm sticking with Immunix :)
