Sorry, I meant to clarify that it was the standard distribution
kernel.  Feisty shipped with 2.6.20-15, and an update was released to
2.6.20-16.  I have not recompiled the kernel myself.  I used to have
to do it all the time, but I don't have to do it on any of my boxes
anymore... just nice to use the distribution as is without issues.

Thanks!
Matt
