I use a external USB mouse/keyboard with my thinkpad, and they
generally work fine. Every third reboot or so, the USB keyboard
doesn't work, but if I unplug it for a few seconds, and then plug it
back in, it's fine.
The biggest problem I have with FC2 is nautilus getting in the way of
SMB and NFS mounts, and locking the machine hard. There is a
workaround by using "killall -STOP nautilus; <mount your drive>;
killall -CONT nautilus", but it doesn't always work. The better
workaround is to use a different window manager, like I'm doing with
(FC2 running 2.6.8-1.521)
