that's kinda what i was afraid of ... plus, i've got my backend stripped 
way down to only the RPMs it needs (no sense in having a full GNOME or 
KDE install on the backend ... even though I use GDM on the frontend). 
getting them in sync would be a big enough pain in the butt for me not 
to want to try it!

thanks to everyone for the info!  hopefully one of these days i'll get 
around to trying it out!
