I'm using Fedora Core 3 and 2.  To be a bit more on topic, I have not 
had any problems compiling Scribus with FC2 or 3 due to Scribus not 
being able to find something or not having it up to date.

There still is an fstab in FC3 that you can use just like you used to,  
for mounting other partitions or whatever.  I think the whole udev/HAL 
thing is still a work in progress.  When I first upgraded to FC3 
suddenly the recognition of my USB storage devices went kablooey until I 
shut of the haldaemon.  It's now fixed even with haldaemon on.

Finding the documentation for these new features is my biggest pet 
peeve.  If it wasn't for fedora-list, I would have been stuck several 
times.  I briefly subscribed to fedora-list but the volume of mails was 
a killer -- now I just browse the archive.  Some talk of FC3 being 
"bleeding-edge" (mostly when someone complains vociferously about 
problems); I think they just have a lower threshold for releasing 
updates, and just figure they'll figure out things like the nvidia 
drivers later.  But when they have guys like Alexander Dalloz answering 
list questions, it's amazing what they can figure out.
