I don't see Red Hat doing anything official with Fedora hardware support
anytime soon. That said, the scripts you located should work without
{any,many?} changes on Fedora if you want to go that route. Remember
that these tests are to see if the hardware falls over, they are not
performance benchmarks. There {are,were?} glaring omissions in the test
suite, like modems, firewire, and usb devices more complex than mice and
keyboards.

I am more familiar with the Red Hat Enterprise 2.1 test programs on that
page, as I used to be the person responsible for testing many of the
IHV's systems during those days. The newer tests are actually easier to
use I'm told, and I can answer questions about them (I may have to ping
the author first, though).
