General consensus seems to be that a 2.4 multimedia kernel is the 'stable' 
approach. You won't have to run Jack as root if you run a patched multimedia 
kernel. You probably won't need to do a lot of tweaking. Best approach is 
probably to get a working system with 2.4 and then upgrade to 2.6 only if 
you're really not happy with results. Personally, I will be happy to wait 
until 2.6 is more stable.
