I am currently looking for my copy of System Commander 7 so that I can 
investigate partitioning my Gentoo laptop and doing an FC2 install. Like 
Steve I think I'm best going this direction, but only using FC2 as a 
comparison point for the realtime problems I'm having.

Who knows...there are too many options and decisions just get confusing.

Thanks for your help,
