Again, please switch to a supported version. Support for FC6 was dropped several years ago. Fedora only support the two most current versions. Currently this is Fedora 10 and 11. In October(?) when F12 is released support for F10 will be dropped. If you need to use the machines longer than 13 months (the support life for any one version of Fedora) without doing a fresh install, switch to a distro with longer term support. Centos (RHEL with the logos stripped) will have support until 2014(at least). Centos if free to download/update(unlike RHEL) and is binary compatible with RHEL.

Edit: On support life of 2014 I was referring to Centos/RHEL5.X.

Exactly, instead of just installing an OS you get hands on why not just search LQ to find out what is the latest stable and supported distribution and then use it?
As said CentOS5 is supported and will be supported for 7years and you need not pay for licensing as well.

If you want to pay for RHEL, as said, contact them direct; it depends on various factors eg how many systems and which of 3 levels of support you want.
If you'd like the free equiv of RHEL, go Centos.
Same code, but Centos logos instead of RH, no phone support. You still get the SW updates (binary), and src code if you want it.

Note that you don't need a 'license' to run any kind of Linux, inc RHEL. What you can pay for (if you want) is a subscription that entitles you to phone/email support and access to their pre-built binary updates.

HTH

this should be auto set up and auto working at install.

a std. mouse WILL work "out of the box" with no setting of anything .

Now some "odd" mice like say my 7 button wireless needs some configuring
BUT
the 3 normal buttons "just work"

... and if you've got RHEL (legally) then use their support; that's what you're paying for.
You can also search their knowledgebase http://kbase.redhat.com
