Fedora Core Lunapark reviews Fedora Core 5, and concludes: "I would only recommend FC5 to people who do not own Nvidia video cards or do not mind tweaking a lot default settings to get things working. Otherwise stay with what you are using and wait for SUSE 10.1 or Ubuntu's Dapper. But if you do stick with FC 5 and get past the quirks, it is quite impressive and I am already eagerly awaiting FC 6."

the default kernel provided with FCR5 (see here for more info - http://www.osnews.com/story.php?news_id=14009 ) doesnt like non-GPL modules and as a result your nVidia and ATI drivers won't install properly, to fix, download the updated 2059 kernel or wait a few days until it appears on yum - 2059 kernel >> http://people.redhat.com/davej/kernels/Fedora/FC5/
