I'd not recommend it.

Fedora Core 5 has many basic changes. For example the X Server
installation is in /usr/bin now, and does not reside in /usr/X11R6/bin
anymore.

Such "little" details might confuse your additional non-core packages.

For those of us too clueless to download ISOs and burn them to CDs or
DVDs, is there any preferred place to get those? I've had rather
variegated experience buying Fedora media online ...

Have you checked at your local University (VTech) there in Blacksburg?
Their computer science dept. has a Unix course
http://courses.cs.vt.edu/~cs2204/ Maybe they'll burn the FC5 CDs/DVDs
for you :-)

User groups are your friend. There is usually at least one person (or more) who will make you copies of whatever distro you want. They can also teach you what it takes to download and burn your own. (It is not hard at all. With tools like K3B, it is easier than the equivelent tools on Windows.)
