Fedora Core 2 is the newest but currently not the best for low latency
work due to the 2.6 kernel. If you don't have critical needs for low
latency it should do, otherwise I'd recommend Fedora Core 1. 

BTW, FC2 uses the 2.6 kernel and many many improvements have happened
during the last month with regards to latency. Also, some problems I was
finding are actually shared by the 2.4 kernel, and were due to denormal
problems in specific applications (long story). So, very soon FC2 it
will be the best choice for a Planet CCRMA install, I hope (difficult to
say how soon, maybe a couple of weeks?).
