I just finishing installing 5.3. I was going to compose an email saying how well it worked for me. Appending to this thread seems applicable.
I have a 9 year old Dell Inspiron 7500. With 5.1 and 5.2 I had issues with the ACPI (Intel's gift to the work, I am told) and the ep driver, so I had to drop back to 4.10 I just reinstalled a 5.2 CD and cvsup'd to RELENG_5. Everything worked like a charm. All ACPI errors were handled and even the ep driver worked. 5.3 may or may not be ready for production servers but it is ready for prime time as a workstation. I am not sure where Kris found such ancient hardware to test on, but thanks. I hope to keep using this thing until 64 bit processors become cheap. On Tue, 21 Sep 2004, Kevin D.
