I guess the only reason is "tried and true". The SMTP gateway setup I'm
usually using is extensively tested on FC4 and it's proven to be extremely
reliable. I am just trying to avoid hours and hours of potential
tinkering.

But, if that's what it takes to get Fedora up and running on this new
system , then I am more than willing to use FC6/7.
