Here are a few:

1.  Run up2date and apply all relevant patches.

2.  If you have an IDE CD-ROM or DVD and DMA is not working, add this
line to the /etc/modules.conf file:

options ide-cd dma=1

3.  Turn off authentication in /etc/ntp.conf or time sync will not work
(at least it did not work for me).  I know at least one other person
that had this problem, but not sure if it is universal.

4.  Download and install java, I use Sun 1.4.1 JRE.

5.  Download and install the goodies you want from psyche.freshrpms.net.
