I installed GnoCHM and it keeps on crashing on my Fedora installation so I'm looking for better alternatives. Please only suggest those that you've used.

Yup, I saw that. Please don't close this as my questions if for Linux only. That question pertains to multiple-OSes. – Randell Apr 2 '10 at 7:04

I regularly use xchm, so far without any issues. It's part of at least Debian.

It shows images, the table of contents to the left and supports printing.

xchm by far is the best one. it opens up fast and one can print! – sterz Jan 22 '11 at 14:11

I will recommend "Chmsee". Easy to install, light weight and not heavy compared to Okular which i got by default with FC 14 Link to download Chmsee

DOwnload Chmsee

Never used a CHM viewer. I always extract it to html+images so I can use any web browser. chmlib has a tool for that.
