    I can't use FC2 on my personal PC now, not until the 3c509C support
is fixed and nVidia releases drivers or I buy ATI..., but I still do
some tests. I've installed FC2 as second OS and I can always (after
some /etc/fstab tweaks) chroot to it, update and test almost everything
else but the kernel. As far as I've tested, FC2 packages do rebuild well
with FC1 and work (I needed quota, nfs-utils and something else in order
to get NFS with fixed port numbers). I can't say FC2 is more or less
stable than FC1 - there are situations where FC2 works much much better,
but there are problems too...
    Hope this helps someone... and the idea is not too bad.
