Okay, so the last time we tried this, I couldn't get X to work. At all. I tried a yum update, but there's something loused up about my yum.conf.
So I figured it's time to replace the yum.conf with the one from the machine that's now running FC5T2 quite handily. That seems simple enough, and maybe this is hideously n00bish, but I just can't get it to work. I've just burned them to CD (yeah, they're tiny, but it seemed sane), and now am trying to mount the CD from the command line I get with the rescue disc. It tells me to enter chroot /mnt/sysimage to actually get things started, which may be my first mistake. I can't seem to mount the CD's to then copy yum.conf and yum.repos.d to where I'd like them. Anyone have suggestions? Will I not be able to do it if I'm all "chroot /mnt/sysimage"-ed in? Should I just yank out the hard-drive and do it directly through the other computer?
I admit it! I'm a total Linux wuss. Help?
