For the choice between fedora and centos, you should think about
how long you want to wait before doing the _next_ upgrade.  If
you think you'll want the new features of a new fedora version
soon, that's the best choice.  If you don't expect to need new
features and don't want to be bothered with frequent re-installs
or not-supported version level upgrades, go with Centos4 which
feature-wise is at about the same level as FC3 would be but which
will get security and bugfix updates much longer.
