Right, so you've done an upgrade. One of the things you should do post-
upgrade is look in the file /root/upgrade.log. There you will find
information about what happened during the upgrade. For some packages
(including in this case up2date) where a configuration file has changed
as a result of the upgrade but where changes had been made to the
original configuration file since the original RPM was installed, one of
two things will have happened:

1. The original configuration file will be saved with a .rpmsave
extension and the new configuration file will be installed, or
2. The new configuration file will be installed but with a .rpmnew
extension.

The idea is that you read through upgrade.log, look for where this has
happened and then look at the changes that have been made to the
configuration files, merging your original changes manually into the new
configuration file.

So what you need to do for up2date is to
compare /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources.rpmnew
with /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources.

Some of the differences will be due to the upgrade from FC2 to FC3; you
should keep the FC3 versions.

Some of the differences will be due to your choice of repos/mirrors; you
should keep your versions (assuming they're still valid for FC3).

Then do the same thing for other configuration files mentioned in
upgrade.log.
