Sorry for the naive question- Can I use this on Blag 10000?

This kernel is meant for BLAG20000 (currently in alpha). It isn't meant for BLAG10000, which is running a 2.4 kernel.

That said, I've run kernel 2.6 on BLAG900x and BLAG10000 but they were custom builds. I don't know what you'd get running a FC2 kernel RPM on a BLAG10000/FC1 system, but if you're familiar with all the goo surrounding kernels, give it a shot and let us know. ;)

Here's a little bit on the wiki about running 2.6 on BLAG900x (RH9-based). You don't need all the new RPMs, methinks, since the ones in 10k are current enough.

You can get the module you need for that at:
http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/

If you bugzilla, http://bugzilla.blagblagblag.org/ might get it into the next release... :)
