I will agree with Jonathan on this. I have read that F11 will run better than F10 on older hardware. Heck, it is becoming the default OS for the OLPC. :)

There are also the security issues.

The one reason you may not be able to get Firefox to install is due to libraries that are outdated in FC5.

What are your graphics specifications/issues?

Most video drivers are better in the later versions of Fedora.
