hi roy, i also use a pIIII 733Mhz 384MB and i upraded from planet fc1
to fc5 (well, fresh install) and i have no complaints.  it's a little
slower, but not annoyingly so.  it sooo nice having newer packages
available!  i haven't tested it with recording more than two channels
simultaneously yet, but the soft synth and sequencing runs just fine,
and i use fluxbox as a wm to make things a little leaner, although for
basic desktop stuff i even use gnome and it's bearable.
