FC3 -> FC4 using yum?

hey everyone, i'm kinda new to linux...

I have been using FC3 for two weeks now, and now FC4 is out...

How to perform the upgrade? Do I have to d/l the ISO's, or can I use yum?

I would say download the ISO's I always do a clean install when a new release comes out. Technically you should be able to be able to update the rpm's. But I don't think you want to go over alot of rpms and dependencies manually

If you run the install disc you can do an upgrade with the dics if desired.

What will happen if you choose the upgrade option from the CD?

It took me a while to install NVIDIA and wireless card drivers... but they are specific to my kernel, will the CD update with its own kernel? Can I still use my kernel?

Seth Vidal, creator of yum, was nice to provide a tutorial for upgrading via yum.

For nvidia, I use src.rpm from Livna on which I rebuild the package.
