In my laptop's case it is definatly true. The kernel is only a small
part of getting it to work well. It has a celeron 677 with 384M RAM.
It is a dog. It takes a lot of tweaking to make it happy. I have found
that trying to strip Fedora down is more difficult than setting up a
lean gentoo. The big downside is comiling on a dog. It will take a few
days to install.
