And you'll want to immediately upgrade the kernel with yum, which will
give you a kernel based on 2.6.22.4, since the kernel they shipped has a
number of problems, particularly with wireless.  Based on Dave Jones' blog
(Fedora's head kernel guy), he clearly considered the initial Fedora 7
kernel (as well as the Linus 2.6.21 kernel) just a bit above a "paper bag
release".
