There are a few things you can help provide feedback on when it comes to
testing.  I'm borrowing from comments Adam shared with me in an email a
while back.  The instructions below offer some quick suggestions, as
well as links to additional testing if you have additional time.

As you've already done, start with some details about your hardware.  If
possible, include a link to your smolt profile [1].

Next, how was your install experience?
      * Tell us how you installed (CD, DVD, Live image, boot.iso, PXE,
        RAID, LVM etc...).  Ideally, provide feedback by updating the
        Install Test Matrix [2] 
      * Should you encounter problems we can discuss them on the list
        here.  I would also suggest looking at the Anaconda bug
        reporting guide [3]

Next, how was your boot experience?
      * Did it boot successfully? (sometimes best to start there!)
      * Was the boot a flicker/artifact free graphical experience?
      * Were any workarounds or cfg changes required (e.g. booting

Finally, any issues encountered setting up and using your system?
      * Again, are the graphics [4][5][6] and display [7] behaving as
      * Does logging into your preferred desktop behave as expected?
      * Were you able to establish a network connection? (You might even
        try some test cases [8])?
      * You can find additional desktop fit'n'finish test areas and
        cases on the wiki [9]

Happy testing!
