That would explain why the two PCs aren't able to discover each other. So 
would just mean you have to manually enter the URL and it should just work. 
the /etc/hosts suggestion I made in my previous email may still be 
applicable if you aren't using DHCP.

On the FC5 PC, you could issue '/usr/bin/avahi-discover' to see what 
Bonjour/ZeroConf servers are being published on the local domain.
