There is a problem with drivers that are updated in later kernels and 
which is not updated in FC. I have a network card that sometimes locks up 
the computer which is supposed to be fixed in 2.4.25.

It's not a security risk, but it's a bit annoying when the computer locks
up. Hopefully the FC2 kernel will contain fewer patches and be easier to
upgrade.

I'd say that the kernel is more important to update then normal program. A
broken driver that crashes the computer is worse then a single program
that segfaults every once in a while.
