FC3. If you're looking for very stable and less major change, try White Box Linux (http://www.whiteboxlinux.org/).

Im using FC3. At first I had to challenge some problems because it is still a new distro. But with upgrades and this forum it is easy to fix them.

WhiteBoxLinux is good. I've tried it, and it's ok. Frankly, though, I do prefer Fedora because of all the readily available updates and extras. If you decide on Fedora, definitely go with FC3, as FC2 will soon be going to the legacy group. FC2 will still work when that happens, it just won't have the level of support enjoyed by FC3.

what about all the wireless networking problems

Honestly, since I don't use wireless networking, I was unaware of problems with that. I don't have any problems with the setup I use. I have a custom built 2.6.10 kernel, adapted for Win4Lin, running on FC3. I can only speak to that.
Perhaps someone with setting up wireless on FC3 can respond with information, tips, fixes, etc.

If you want to use an FCx release, I would suggest FC3 since you'll be able to get more help on it than FC2 on these boards. If you want a more stable linux release with more wireless support, maybe look at Mandrake or SuSE.
