Upgrading to FC6

I’m going to try to upgrade to Fedora Core 6 right now, in shaa Allaah.  I’ll let you all know how it went.  I usually prefer to install OSes from scratch, but in this case, I’m just going to give upgrading and try and see what happens.  If worse comes to worst, then I’ll just go ahead with a fresh install and let yum do the rest.  One of the new features for anaconda in FC6 is that you can actually access the software repositories directly from the installation process, but I’m not sure I want to spend hours inside the install routine where I cannot do anything interesting – so I’ll probably just install the basics, and then once the OS is booted-up (boot time should be faster, too) I’ll probably run yumex as I’m checking my e-mail or posting and whatnot.

Here goes!  Bismillaah!
