The FC3 release notes discuss some issues with Gnome

    o There have been issues observed when upgrading Red Hat Linux 7.<x>,
       8.0, 9, and Fedora Core 1 systems running Ximian GNOME. The issue is
       caused by version overlap between the official Red Hat Linux RPMs (or
       the ones from the Fedora Project) and the Ximian RPMs. This
       configuration is not supported. You have several choices in resolving
       this issue:

       1) You may remove Ximian GNOME from your system prior to upgrading to
       Fedora Core.

       2) You may upgrade your system, and then immediately reinstall Ximian

       3) You may upgrade your system, and then immediately remove all
       remaining Ximian RPMs, replacing them with the corresponding Fedora
       Core RPMs.

       You must resolve the version overlap using one of the above choices.
       Failure to do so will result in an unstable GNOME configuration.
