i had the same situation here.  i happened to be running  RH (7.2) servers
and addressing vulnerabilities started to become an issue.

i went the fedora route with few problems, most of my own making.  the
upgrades went relatively smoothly.  initial issues dealt with the upgrade
picking up an old config file for a nic on one server and causing my wins
server to not be able to find the server, causing domain login problems, and
minor differences between older versions of samba and samba 3.0.  fedora
stability has not been an issue here.  all they do is run, and run, and run
