[PlanetCCRMA] Fedora Core 3 or 4?

Hopefully this weekend I will finally find time to format my hard drive 
and reinstall everything from scratch (this seems like the sanest way to 
upgrade from FC1 and also gives a much-needed opportunity for a good 
clean-out).  The question is, should I go for Fedora Core 4 and be a bit 
more future-proof or will I be risking instability?  I'm hoping that in 
the near future the system will be used for live performances using 
SuperCollider so stability is pretty important, and also I'd like to be 
back up and running as quickly and painlessly as possible so I can get 
straight back to being creative.  On the other hand, being able to have 
the latest versions of non-Planet stuff like the Gimp would be sweet.

So what's the state of play with FC4 as regards staility and ease of 
installation at the moment?
