If you want to help the FC team to test and debug FC5 I would encourage
you to get started with FC5 rawhide.  The members of this list are great

If you need a stable release I would advise FC4, but even with FC4 you
will need to make sure to avail yourself of the upgrades after you
perform the installation of the fc4 distro.  

I have been following Fedora from FC1,through FC4 and recently started
changing the desktops from MS/xp to FC4.  The acceptance from the users
has been better than I expected. The only software that is not
replaceable has been MS Publisher.

I probably will not upgrade these units to FC5 until the end of 2006 to
make sure most problems have been resolved with the new release.  

Have Fun!!!!
