tail: cannot open `+511' for reading: No such file or directoryThat's suggestive. Perhaps FC5 has (again) been playing around with options to the "tail" command? There have been upheavals in the past as they have tried to enforce strict POSIX rules (i.e. no naked +5 or -5, but only -n +5 or -n -5), and then backed away, etc.
Try just something like
tail +1 /etc/hosts
and see if it gives you an error. If it does, then you can either
(a) complain to sun (file a bug report)
(b) read the "man" page for tail, and see if there's some environment variable or something you can set to get the "other" behavior (allowing "tail +5").
