Excellent.  A few minor nit picks.

Can you use the icon set from This is the 
icon set that is going to be included in FC6 and the homepage style 
should fit with the rest of the desktop. If you need more specific 
icons, fedora-art list has people who can help out.

I am not sure whether the getting started guide, desktop user guide and 
administration guide are going to written and completed in time for FC6. 
The release notes package has been split up in the development tree 
which makes it easier to update this page during release time however. 
As a mockup thats fine.

Key features can be replaced by a link to the HelpWanted wiki page IMO. 
We need to encourage people to contribute more than tell him how great 
Fedora is since they already need to install it to see his page.

The blurb on getting started guide refers to "Fedora Core Linux". We 
dont use that name. For consistency, change it into Fedora Core or just 
Fedora especially if it covers software in Fedora Extras too.

The FAQ should be placed right below the release notes since they are 
both local documents and of higher priority than other guides.

For comparison and ideas, Thanks
