    I think they say previous version is supported 6 months after release of the next version.

    That is the one and only issue I had with Lenny also, just couldn't get HD#2 to mount no matter what I tried. I'm wondering if it's just a Gnome/Nautilus issue of some kind. It kinda seems like the disk IS mounting, but I just can't access it in Nautilus. I don't know though.....

    Found this while browsing the fedora forums:-

    I've just used this brilliant little program and it works beautifully. A really big help for newbies to get all the required codecs, drivers, media player etc. It drops an icon on your desktop, you run it as root and it downloads and installs your selections. Great little app.

    Hello there!

    Having played with the preview recently, last week I decided to install Fedora 11 Release on my systems.
    Fedora Leonidas is the first distro that installs on EVERY system in my home with success, finally!
    It demonstrates that linux is progressing and getting hardware compatible.

    I think that Fedora has the very best font rendering available in linux world, the fonts are just sharp out of the box.
    And http://rpmfusion.org offers the missing proprietary and other software/drivers with simple clicks, bravo!
    If you want to enable LCD subpixel hinting, then install freetype-freeworld from rpmfusion.org.

    Ubuntu LTS is probably the answer... https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LTS

    I suggest using Packagekit and do a search for "fastest"; usually the last one in the result window.

    This plugin will do a search for the fastest servers before downloading/installing anything.
