Yuh. Unlike past RH installs/upgrades I've done (which
never crossed the line between FC and RH before), the install
process didn't find the existing system in order to upgrade
it -- so it needs to be a complete save-stuff/install/edit
cycle as indicated.
Which is okey except I'm *really* not looking forward to
going through the @&*#&@*(&@( package selection process
again and rationalising it against the ones I have installed
on FC3. It'ud be nice if the package list were exportable
and importable (just the list of what's installed).
Sigh. Live, learn, and reinstall.
