Due to popular demand, now without the shouting ;)

the latest Buzilla list:

It's never too late to read the Release Notes for Fedora Core 2:

http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/2/i386/os/RELEASE-NOTES-en.html

For other problem fixes/information, please go to the Unofficial FAQ. 
Trust me, the answer is probably there.  If it's not, there will most
likely be a link to it:

http://www.fedorafaq.org/

Check Bugzilla, try the "most frequently reported bugs" listing first:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/duplicates.cgi

Here's the link to the Archive for this list:

http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-list/

You can try the search feature at the top of that page, but it's been
known to be flaky at times. If you have problems there, go to:

http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=fedora-list&r=1&w=2

That's an alternate site for the fedora-list archives and has a working
search engine. 

_______________________________________________________________________
Try Google:

http://www.google.com/
-or-
http://www.google.com/linux

Slap a string in there with your error message (or part of it) and see
if anyone else has had the problem.
_______________________________________________________________________

If you can't find an answer to your problem with any of those steps
above, post here at fedora-list redhat com   But BEFORE YOU DO THAT- the
folks here can help you much better if you include the following
information:

-A descriptive subject title. This will spare folks who don't have
advice from spending the time reading your note, and will single out
those who do. It will also be a great help to those who come after you
with the same problem.

-Hardware specs of your machine: motherboard, CPU, video card, ethernet
card, etc...

-Software info: Kernel version, Window manager.

-Error messages.

-Steps you took that got you to this error.
