FC4 x86_64 Freezes Randomly

I've been running an install of FC4 x86_64 for 2 days now and I'm already having problems.

1.) Bluetooth devices (ie., keyboard and mouse) are disabled after loading Bluetooth devices at boot. I've found a way to work around it by using interactive setup and typing "n" when it asks me about loading Bluetooth.

2.) Linux freezes at random times. It may or may not be linked to the above problem, but it seems like it happens while I'm browsing the internet via Firefox.

Any thoughts? Thanx in advance.

You need to post your hardware specs, so that it'll be easy to rule out some possibilities.

Also, it's clear that you need to configure the X Window System. When installing, Fedora will try to recognize your graphic card and sometimes uses a generic driver, this could cause the effect you describe.

Type this command in a console (as root):

# cat /etc/var/Xorg.0.log | grep "(EE)"
and post the results.
