Fantastic Johan. This is just what I need. I need to upgrade my AMD64 
FC2 and I was wondering how I was going to do it all. I didn't know if I 
should go FC3 32-bit or not. I'd like to stick with 64bit, but the 
FC2-64 was a somewhat of a pain to do. It's pretty broken as it is -- 
still works though and we've been using it since around Oct2004.

Did you install FC3 clean or was it an upgrade?  I'll check out your page.
