I'm using the stock unstable version of Debian.  It also have everything 
you need (I don't think it has the patched kernel, but it does have the 
source and the low-latency patches as separate packages).  I typically 
build most things from CVS also, just to stay on the bleeding edge of 
things -- JACK, Ardour, JAMin and Rosegarden, primarily.
