I have one statement to address...

Get your act together re-release new ISOs that fix these 2 problems
within 2 weeks or...

I'm sorry, did I read this correctly.  You are given (free I might add)
this OS.  Either contribute to the project, or be appreciative.  

There's a reason people by RHEL licenses, and don't go with Fedora. They
are two separate product lines (Like Honda and Acura).  If you want
something super stable with support, pay for it, use RHEL 3.  If you
want cutting edge, cross your fingers and use fedora. Use part of your
50K to buy a few WS licenses, or keep RH9 and use fedora legacy.

Did you really think moving to the 2.6 kernel was going to be pain free?

Grow up Tom.
