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."

I installed FC5-Test3 and it went very smoothly, however, FC5 Final has a number of problems.

After install FC5 Final doesn't automatically ask to set up one user whereas FC5-Test3 did, with FC5 Final you have to manually log in as root addgroup and adduser etc. In addition FC5 Final boots into the command line (init 3) whilst FC5-Test3 and all earlier FCs booted into the GUI prompt. Why is this?

Also, with FC5 final, Japanese is completely ignored. If you choose Japanese, it boots into English. Why?
Also XFCE is not shown - only GNOME and KDE is shown, even though I installed XFCE.
These problems didn't exist on FC5-Test3. I don't know how they appeared in FC5 Final. I've been using FCs since FC1... I have like liked FCs even up to FC5-Test3. But now I have so many basic problems to solve before it is minimally useable.
