About half my most recent work other than on Debian has been on Nahant where 
yum isn't, and yum didn't exist when I was using RHL, so yum is new to me.

Since I've not yet attempted to set yum up, I'll be pleasantly surprised if it 
does anything right.

As for Debian, Debian does many things well and if reporting some of its 
better features here inspires others to improve things here then that helps

Thanks for that. Done that, looks like Yum is doing something, but not what I 
want. Its going too slowly to be reading my DVD>

I responded to your earlier email on the basis  you were telling _me_ what _I_ 
would do: one of the problems with English is one can't always understand 
whether a speaker means "you the person" or ""you the group," and I 
interpreted you differently from what I would have meant.

Looks like I have to read up on Yum; it's definitely not read my mind 

Of course, Debian would have got this right by asking my about my CD 
collection and mirror choice-)
