I went over the currently 117 bugs in Bugzilla that I can query (is this right?) and didn't see the following. Please tell me if any of this should be in Bugzilla as I don't feel confident yet inputting all of these.
BTW, if I create entries in Bugzilla, should I create only one that covers a number of small glitches per category (ie: install) or should I create just one per bug, however nitpicky it is?

Workstation install, English US + French-Canadian & Chinese Taiwan. 1,2,3 were required (but the 3rd was barely used).
-Did not detect that my monitor was a LCD 1024x768. Recent MDK10 and Lindows4.5 are able to.
-The mouse feels "strange", "jumpy", not smooth. This is with a PS/2 two buttons mouse ("Made for IBM by Logitech") connected to the PS/2 instead of the laptop built-in mouse.
-"Please insert disc 2 to continue" the currently inserted disk is not ejected automatically. This has been reported by someone else on this list.
-The "Fedora Core" logo on top of the progress bar is awful: font with staircase effects and a barely legible TM. Also: how about small bios of the developers and contributors on this screen? That would be a nice touch for a community OS and would be a nice reward for people contributing freely.
-Size: 4 CD-ROM is just too much. Should ready pick best of breed and put them on the first CD-ROM only for Personal/Workstation installs. Also - time to distribute DVD. With Workstation, the first 3 CD-ROM are used!
-Time to install: 40mn-1hour. Lindows is oh-so-much faster, I think because it has a image of the base install on the CD-ROM, decompresses it and dumps it directly to the HD.
-Thank you for providing normal-size CD-ROM images! It must be tempting to use slightly large ISO images (80mn instead of 74mn), but that would mean I'd have to sacrifice CDR instead of using my old CDRW.
-Just a Q about the boot diskette: I read somewhere that the kernel did not fit anymore on a floppy, how does the boot diskette work?
-on reboot after install... Kernel Stopped booting after agpgart and Serial: 8250[...]IRQ sharing enabled lines. Poweroff/poweron seems
-cpuspeed: Error could not open file for writing /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/cpu_governor
-Configuration after reboot is much nicer then would have been otherwise possible to do during install! I like it!
-License Agreement: should force scrolling to bottom before enabling "Yes, I agree".
-Date and Time: would be nice to have a server based on the TZ we already provided. Right now, it is just RedHat NTP servers.
-Sound Card: as usual, I cannot hear anything coming out of the sound card. I've seen this problem in other distros whereas my speaker volume is set very low at boot. Maybe some way to adjust the volume before playing the test sound? (note: I couldn't get the sound working later either... something is wrong, this works under MDK10b2).
-Should be a way to configure auto-login as in Mandrake, especially for Personal/Workstations install. Frankly, I even like the idea of no password for root for those kind of installs.
-From power-on to opening start menu: 2mn18s. Made slower because of long delay (10s instead of say 3s) in grub and have to log-on.
-From power-on to opening start menu WITHOUT NETWORK: 2mn20s. I'm happy about that, I remember times when it takes a long longer to start without network.
-xfs: ignoring font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic (unreadable) (see messages)
-I would expect the keyboard switcher in the system tray as I have requested French-Canadian and Chinese support.
