If you'd like to leave the machine alone in the future, might I
suggest "upgrading" to CentOS 4 instead of FC6. It will change far
less, RHEL4 being relatively close to FC4, and will be maintained much
longer than FC6 will. I will probably do the same thing to my MythTV
backend, since I really can't be bothered to upgrade it to FC7 six
months from now.
