Thanks, Konstantin, stand by next week, when I switch back to Fedora,
about the graphics card! Other than that, I'd say that Fedora 6 was
the best distro that I've used since Fedora 3, with only the X1400
giving me trouble.

But, one has to play the field a bit, to know what else is out there,
in order to really appreciate his 'home choice'. And I always come
back to Fedora.

Neat! Can't wait to hear what it's like :)

By the way, to get the x1400 working, all you need to do is "yum --enablerepo=livna install kmod-fglrx" and then adjust /etc/X11/xorg.conf (by hand or using the ati utility) It's pretty stable in this case (suspend/hibernate both work, 3D acceleration works..)
