Thanks Fred, I suspect you're right, and I'm just going to let F12 stay
put on there. I do have it dual-booting with Linux Mint 9 LXDE which
may end up with an updated kernel with that patch at some point soon. I
don't use the Mint very often because it does strange things to the
system clock so I have to enter the date & time for the bios just to
get it to boot after running Mint.  Same thing when I tried
#!Crunchbang on there.

And my primary computer is my desktop pc, so I'm sure that will see the
new kernel goodness sometime soon!
