Is there a distro where Youtube actually works?

I have Fedora 5 and I tried to install sun's java and macromedias flash player but both don't work so I can't go to lots of my favorite pages.

I followed tutorials to the T but they didn't work. I am thinking maybe Fedora just doesn't like me and am considering SUSE.

it works for me both in arch and slackware. sometimes the audio and video is out of sync, but i think that's because of flash sucking.

I've been enjoying watching video on on my Fedora Core 5.

Stanton Finley's Fedora Core 5 Installation Notes is an excellent guide to set up and configure FC5, including Java and Flash.
