Repeat after me... Fedora Core 1 is just Red Hat 10. Fedora Core 1
is just Red Hat 10...
FC1 is actually quite a bit more suitable for a server than RH9. The
NPTL stuff is ironed out much better, and the addition of exec-shield
should protect from the vast majority of potential exploits. Random
other bits are also much more server-quality.
Remember that the whole point of Fedora Core (from Red Hat's
standpoint) is to be able to basically beta-test whatever is going
into future versions of RHEL. That's why they're in a hurry to push
in bits like exec-shield in FC1 and SELinux in FC2.
