If you take these from FC6, you need several more just because of the
dependencies of the FC6-RPMS. But I didn't try it (read: rebuilding them
and `rpm -i --nodeps` them) since I can't risk it ATM.
Another option/possibility could be to use CentOS-5 with a (very
probably heavily patched) 2.6.18 kernel which is now in beta since RHEL5
has been annouced last week or so. So at least the user-space should be
much more recent.
