for the old fedora 8
the fedoraforum has a "end of life" section for those that HAVE to use a unsupported version
but 8 is very old
many things have changed
as i recall fedora 8 had ( then still EXPERIMENTAL) pulse audio
and it had many MANY bugs and did not have the yet to be built pv control
fedora and most current OS's are now using udev and now SystemV
fedora 8 uses the old init system
in fedora 20 and most current OS's there are no longer any "run levels"
init 3 and init 5 are mo longer used
and the Network manager has changed
i think fedora8 only had "network" and a EXPERIMENTAL for wireless / vpn/ dsl/ "network Manager"
with the old "network" as default
"network Manager" is now the default
the very basic SELinux tools have come a long way in 12 operating system versions also
there are almost NO SElinux issues any longer
fedora 8 also had a VERY NASTY pam selinux bug
that was fixed in fedora 9
odd that ITT is using fedora ( a VERY VERY FAST moving "research and development" distro) and NOT the FREE redhat clone " CentOS 6.5 "
I would have thought that they would be using CentOS and Debian with Slackware in higher classes
