OK.

I took a look at 

http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora.us/fedora/redhat/9/i386/yum/stable/RPMS/.

Were those packages created for RH 9 or for Fedora XX? I thought all the
fedora stuff was to support the fedora core? However, the numbering on the
packages could lead one to think that they are created for RH 9. 

In any event, I think I will leave them out for a while until I get a little
better feel for fedora-legacy. I noticed that the rpms for chkrootkit and
leafnode are not current. I suspect that will probably be the case for the
extras I have installed for original sources.
