I installed CentOS which is as close to FC6 as you can get, I have all
of my applications, my multimedia working, KDE 3.5.4, and even Xvfb
works like a charm. Imagine that! Now I don't even CARE that it never
works with Fedora. No more gripes! 

I can depend on my machine behaving like it did yesterday and the day
before, it's all good. Everyone has been right, install CentOS if it's a
soft ride you're looking for. My favorite vehicle has always been an
older Cadillac! But, I'd definitely install Kubuntu to Mom's machine. I
created another partition, installed Kubuntu to it, and there are some
things I absolutely love about it, and some that I despise. CentOS is
right there solidly in the middle between Fedora and Ubuntu. 

Happy as a clam, no mo' bitchin', Ric
