Full reinstall or update

Hi, Richard:

I can tell you that I have not installed for the very first time ever.
Instead, I've upgraded two systems which were running the beta version
of what is now Fedora Core 1.0 using YUM (the Yellow-dog Upgrade
Manager). Yum is, well, it's yummie.

So, give it a try. Get and install yum and point it at the Fedora
release repository. The worst that can happen is that it won't work, and
you'll have to install. So, if you're ready to install, try yum first.

Of course, play it safe and take a backup copy of /etc and your
mailboxes, etc., etc -- the usual pre-installation precautions.
