So what is the major version upgrade path for the EL version vs the Fedora
version?


The EL versions are supported for years with bugfix/security updates but you don't get new major versions of applications. Centos 5 will start out with approximately the application versions that are on FC6 which are good choices now. A couple of years from now you can expect the box to still be running reliably and still a good choice for server applications but desktop apps are still evolving rapidly and you may want to jump to some newer FC version to get new app version. I'd recommend going with the EL version when it is current so your next choice of when to upgrade will be based on what you want to run, not being forced to switch because your old version is not supported with updates any longer. It's also a good stable choice for a machine that will be a home directory server.
