Dude, I think I still have scars. I was nuts enough to install Gentoo  
on my old 500MHz G3 iBook at one point (from stage 1 of course, or why  
bother?). The golden sombrero of pain: Gentoo, a slow processor, a  
PowerPC w/o even altivec, and a laptop (whee, suspend/resume). Got it  
all working reasonably well, then decided it just wasn't worth the  
maintenance overhead to keep it up-to-date. Reinstalled Mac OS X and  
gave it to my inlaws, iirc. :)

Fedora's rawhide tree is more than crunchy enough for me. (Post-F11  
rawhide is actually surprisingly stable...)
