Premature praise

I was a bit hasty in my praise of Fedora Core 5. After downloading the updates which included a new kernel version, my Intel 2200 no longer functioned and after a number of starts and stops I’ve reverted to Centos 4.3. There is a lot to be said for stability. Centos is enterprise Linux and though it doesn’t recognize the Intel 2200 out of the box, it is a simple matter of installing the correct firmware and the problem is solved. Fedora Core 5 offers no easy solution to this problem. I’m downloading Fedora Core 6 on Bittorrent right now and later I’ll try it. Peace.
