I installed my box with Mythdora, so I'll have to check if they have any 
updates for F8.  If not, how did you upgrade?  Did you upgrade to a 
stock F8 installation, then add Myth afterwards?  Did you pull in the 
latest packages from atrpms?  I assume that I'd have to tuck my database 
away somewhere if I went this route, correct?
