Yes, it's true if you want to use the 5.1.1 book or earlier. The 
toolchain in Fedora Core 2 is too new to build the toolchain used in the 
aforementioned books. Methods have been suggested that will allow it to 
work evidently involving building a cross-compiled chapter five, but 
that is still being tested. Regardless, you can use the 6.0-testing book 
or the unstable book ( note: it is not recommended to use unstable 
unless you are prepared to deal with what might break ) as all books 
from 6.0 on have no problem building from Fedora Core 2.
