A few things:
Acrobat 5 for Linux is a bit buggy. It may not always work exactly
like you want. Acrobat 7 is a lot better regarding stability, features
etc. It also eats a lot more memory.
The FC2 distribution is since the release of FC4 officially
unmaintained. Unless you've got a very good reason to stick with FC2
it's better to upgrade to FC4.
FC4 comes with the new PDF viewer "Evince" which is lean, reads a lot
more PDF's than Gnome PDF ever would and supports printing in a sane
As a last request: checklists of bugs or missing features are
valuable. In fact, they are so valuable you don't just want to send
them to some mailing list, but also enter them into the Red Hat or
Gnome bugzilla systems. It really increases the odds of bugs being
fixed for the next release ;)
