Sounds like you have applied Jason's driver on FC1 before. Since Jason
provides instructions for doing so with arbitrary kernels, you would have
to follow these to get FastTrak support back in.

Thanks, that is very useful information. It looks like FC1 also does
not support FastTrak (at least not Ed's version), right?

Thanks, a note here would be very welcome.
