I'd love to be on FC2, but haven't got time to hack things round for a week if it doesn't update without problems at the first time of asking! Just got my web site locked down!
Yum dowloands all the headers okay, then reports:
I will do the following:
[install: kernel 2.4.22-1.2194.nptl.i686]
Is this ok [y/N]: y

Probably not a politically correct thing to say, but what do Microsoft do different for Windows XP Windows Update? Any lessons that can be applied to Fedora?? Windows Update seems to scale okay and never seems to have load problems - while up2date throws checksum errors when a download didn't work, which isn't helpful nor a true reflection of what happened.
In the meantime, i'll retry the yum update kernel when the USA are mostly back asleep...
