There are two options: (1) install the current snapshot of Feisty, (2)
roll your own kernel.

(1) is probably a bit risky at this stage - I'm waiting till it's beta
(6 weeks ??).

(2) in the old days this was the obvious option, but I get the
impression that nowadays it's much more complex because of the need for
it to be tailored to Ubunutu - but I don't know for sure, I'm not an
expert.  I haven't compiled a custom kernel for some while.
