I would recommend giving 64Studio a try. Probably tuned better than Mandrake/iva would be even with this real-time patch.
Sometimes the problem with latency is overly conservative IDE settings ( you may have to get familiar with hdparm to change this) or excessive CD-ROM drive polling.

There are some good docs floating around on this but might be quicker to take 64Studio for a spin.

2 HOURS to recompile the kernel - wow, there's now way it should take that long with recent hardware. I do remember when you could spend that much time at it but that was LONG ago !!!!
