2.6.16-1+ FC4 UP on original kuro!
No heavy voodoo (kernel compilation) required.
Thanks to baulab for the kernels!
kudos to bconboy for the FC4 and rebooterbits images.

Install the current FC4 image, prep drive using old kuro EM mode.
(I gave it 8G for /...) Could have used an old Knoppix CD I suppose for the prep...
(due to a reported ext3 version compatibilty issue vs the stock kuro kernel vs FC4)
I also suspect that mkswap MUST be run under the PPC kernel...
Moved over to my mandrake box, opened kuro case, attached drive.
(no need to remove---case is designed for access to plugs)
Mounted /dev/hdx1 (/) and unpacked fc4, ( fc4-stable-kuroboxhg-blc2.tar.gz) which has the required "loader.o"s for the various configs.
also unpacked latest rebooterbits.
Then, after much reading, pulled the precompiled kernel and modules:
I used the 2.6.16-1-kurobox kernel and modules, obviously.
Put the modules into the mounted FC4 drive (into /lib/modules/)
Put the kernel in a subdir of rebooter, moved the HG kernel, and linked the vmlinux.bin in the new kernel-184.108.40.206-kuro-box dir to /rebooter/vmlinux26
Haven't had time to test, took about 60 seconds before I could ssh in as root (no password) came up on DHCP without issues.
Thanks to all the usual suspects!
(it's late, or I would search provide proper attribution. My wifes about to kill me already)
It doesn't power off properly yet, but I'm pretty sure someone already posted a fix, so I'm declaring victory and calling it a night.
(OK, so I added a good DNS entry and fired off yum update...)
Update-- the new init rpm works fine, power button now works as expected.
I'm still looking for the original kuro .config files... but it's really not an issue anymore....
