Well, After the same two weeks running amd64 K12LTSP - per the 
instructions in Eric's email (above) I have to say it's working fine. My 
last server was running k12ltsp4.0/4.1. I did a fresh install of FC3, 
and then added in the various repositories and so on. It has performed 
very well, and the 32bit binaries have mostly worked, with a couple of 
exceptions. My crappy mpio mp3 player which uses the libusb functions 
hasn't worked yet...

All of the basics seem to work, although I haven't got sound working on 
the terminals. I tried quickly, but the terminal wouldn't start programs 
- something about wanting libaudiooss.so.1.0. Turns out it's an issue 
with nasd. I didn't pursue it. Who knows.
