I can only ACK this, as the reddhat kernels are usually highly patched

2.6.9 is ok but build (? or patchlevel) 1667 is a little much...

btw this is from fc3 on an wintel, but even patchlevel 1.667 seems high even
if rh is contributing to the kernel...

667 is not a patch level, but rather a versioning number for the kernel rpm (the .spec file, actually). And it is ever increasing:

kernel-2.6.14-1.1653_FC4
kernel-2.6.14-1.1656_FC4
kernel-2.6.15-1.1830_FC4
kernel-2.6.15-1.1831_FC4

The 1. is introduced to make rollbacks and downgrades easier wrt the rpm version/release compare routines.
