	Weird.  You definitely don't need to pay for an enterprise release, though.  
As already suggested, FC should suit you fine.

	However, if you're partial to SUSE, we've been running 9.1 all the way to 
10.0, in both 32 and 64 bit, with no serious troubles(currently all 10.0).  I 
have heard of some issues with 10.1, but you might want to try installing 
10.0 on one of the systems and see if it improves.  You won't be giving up 
any coolio neat software - the upgrade doesn't appeal to me personally.

	It is in the realm of possibility that the identical hardware you're running 
has some component that doesn't have a good linux driver yet, however.
