Please use a mirror. The main Redhat server has already enough traffic.

Doing an XFree and KDE update while having X running is not the best
idea. Better switch to init 3, run up2date-nox -u there and when
finished switch back to init 5.

root? You mean you are running X and KDE as root? This would be very
bad. If you did not mean that please explain what the permissions are.

If you use IMAP you might need to resubscribe the additional folders.

Check the permissions.

Which mouse do you have? There should be no issue with the mouse and
latest FC1 kernel .2174 as far as I know.
