Thanks Calvin that helps.  I have Old Compaq Proliant 7000 Dual
Processor 450MHZ PII with a 1.5GB Ram Raid 5 which is the Samba 3 PDC.
All the server does s file and print services, dhcp, and dns.  I have an
imaging server which is very similar except it is Compaq  Proliant 6000
that I can test the an upgrade and see what happens.  If it mess up KDE
I would not cry to much is long as I could fix it some time.

Currently we're running FC2 in a "pre-production" test server that has
ended up getting some pretty heavy use and is actually running a Jabber
server for internal office IM. At the moment it's also running
Egroupware and Moodle (as well as Apache, PHP, MySQL, etc). It's on an
old PIII 650...and a Compaq at that. :P But, it does run fine, and I
haven't had any problems with FC2 since the install. It's only been up
for 28 days though. We're planning on using FC2 in a few full production
boxes come this fall. So, I have some faith in it. Of course, if my
little pre-production server died this afternoon I would cry all that

The only real problem I've had with FC2 was when I tried to do an
upgrade from FC1...I had a few issues with KDE on the box that I
upgraded. But I've since just wiped it and done a fresh FC2 install.
Since then I haven't had any problems. So, I'm not sure I'd upgrade a
production box to FC2 at this point, simply because I've had some
trouble with the upgrade. However, I'd certainly plan on phasing in FC2
over FC1 on any box where I could do a fresh install. Hope this helps.
