CentOS 4 does look interesting. It would be interesting to rebuild
Planet CCRMA on top of it for a more stable platform (perhaps too
stable? What happens when a lot of the apps go to versions that won't
build because of dependencies that are not there? - anyhow, perhaps I'm
looking too far in the future :-)

I'm guessing but most probably the fc3 packages would install, have you
tried that? Anyway, most probably a rebuild would not be too bad, it is
just a matter of finding the time (ie: the resources) to do it. 

It certainly looks interesting.
