FC2 was discontinued even before that, and there haven't been updates for a
number of very critical security issues. If you really need a very old
distribution, I'd suggest CentOS 3 instead. It's very Fedora-like (as might
be expected, since it's derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3), and has
_current_ security updates, and further will be supported 'til 2010 or so.
