Thanks for the reply Joe.  Following your suggestion I looked at the 
Planet CCRMA instructions for installing on top of Fedora Core 8, was 
able to locate where the Fedora Core 9 and Fedora Core 10 CCRMA 
repositories were located, and enabled the CCRMA repository for Fedora 
Core 9.

The RealTime kernel I got was:

Linux serenity.valley #1 SMP PREEMPT RT 
Tue May 13 04:33:19 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I'm running it right now after a reboot.  As soon as I did RealPlayer 
11 is back to using the motherboard speaker, arrg!  Oh well.

Any reason you plan to install Fedora Core 9 instead of Fedora Core 
10?  Let me know how your installation goes and how you succeed in 
disabling PulseAudio.  At this point, I'm ready to leave Planet CCRMA 
for any Linux distribution that doesn't use PulseAudio.
