Only 2.4 kernels use the /proc/sys/kernel/lowlatency file.  I don't know
if there are multiple patches for low latency; I use a precompiled
kernel from Planet CCRMA with RedHat 9, and I've got it.  My system
is rock stable.  I keep meaning to upgrade, but hate mucking with a 
working system, and since I build Ardour from scratch anyway, I don't
mind if the rest of it isn't cutting edge!  The stability is much more
