Don't panic!  ;-)  Linuxant makes available prebuilt kernels with 16K
stacks, but there is a short time lag between when the Fedora kernel
is available and when the equivalent Linuxant kernel is available.

It's perfectly acceptable to use a kernel that's one rev back ...
unless you are waiting for a particular bug fix or the new kernel is
closing a security hole. In either of those two cases, you will need
to make an unpleasant choice: no fix but with wireless, or fix but no

So, my advice is download the latest Linuxant rev kernel and install
that. (Don't forget to use "rpm -ivh kernel-xxxxxxxxx.rpm".)

Feel free to ping me with questions, but understand that the weekend
is nigh and it's beautiful here in the San Francisco Bay Area, so I'm
likely to be outside!

Good luck.
