There are some serious show stopping bugs on the FC4 release. For example, I have a dell server with an ACARD IDE raid controller that Fedora has the driver support for. Anaconda screws up and loads the incorrect driver, and then cant see any hard disks on the system. There is no easy fix around it ( well, SUSE 10 works fine) and that is sad. Also, on many intel chipsets, anaconda will crash at the section of the installation where is needs ot format the disks. It says that there is an error writing to the partition /dev/hdx and the kernel will not be notified of any changes to the disk. Immediatley after that, the installer crashes, and forces a reboot. So I switched to ubuntu for the desktop although I would prefer to use Fedora.
