kernel version:

I restored before installing mythtv.

I have an external hard drive that I use to backup all data.  Using
the automysqlbackup utility:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/automysqlbackup/, I backed up my
database to the external hard drive, along with all of the video and
the etc dir (for reference for any config iisues).   Installed FC7
including mysql, patched via yum, restored the database and video,
then installed mythtv via yum.
