hello all, new user on this mailing list.

just wondering...

recently did a hardware upgrade and experienced some lengthy down time from ubuntu studio [in between that time]. 

long story short...

i tried installing a stable 8.04.1 AMD64 ubuntustudio but that failed so i installed from ubuntu desktop live cd, using 8.10 second release.

reading this recent email digest below, i am wondering if i can go ahead and install a real time kernel safely, being that i read a post on ubuntu website saying 2 avoid ubuntustudio 8.10 and use stable hardy.

can i consider that particular note obsolete or if not, would it b possible 2 install an rt-kernel from hardy via apt-get and safely use it?

thx in advance. i really miss my ubu-stu:)
