Fedora 7 is no longer supported and no longer gets any updates including
security updates (!), so using it as a server is just asking the next
script kiddie around you to break into your machine. Please upgrade to
Fedora 10 (not Fedora 9 as that is going to stop getting updates less than
2 months from now) NOW.

Fedora is not a "fire and forget" distribution, you MUST upgrade at least
once a year. If that's not OK for you, use CentOS, not Fedora.
