Fedora is shipping epiphany instead of galeon (it is a branch of
galeon). Also - the newer galeon versions are a bit different from the
ones you got used to with RHL9 (I believe its a major rewrite for
gnome-2). If you wish to use galeon - you have 2 options:

- Install one from fedora.us testing (yum speak)

- Install from dag (with this you'll use mozilla-1.6 as well)

I've update mozilla/epiphany & installed galeon/pine (and a bunch of
other things) from dag repository.
