I agree. We run a batch of RHEL servers at work with a core rhn
server. Makes upgrading/patching really nice. My piddly 4
FC3 servers (good guess, btw) pale in comparison.
So, I guess I have two options - upgrade to FC4 or provide the
2.3 bits. Can I use yum, smart or apt to move to FC4, or can
I use them to provide the python bits?
