I'll try to explain, I not used to linux jargon.
My internet kept failing to the degree that I have no connectivity at mo and
have to use my windows machine (could be hardware, am working on it).
Gnome would freeze, I could save files to desktop but they would not show up
untill I rebooted, I could not get samba to work at all, xserver would not
close down properly. That is all I can name at the moment, there were alot
of other things that would happen sporadicaly.
Over all I found FC3 good and I'm sure if I was an experianced linux user I
would have been able to fix these things but I need an OS that runs pretty
much from install.
I thinkin of trying Gentoo, do you have any experiance with it?
You were saying that you are using FC4, how is it?
