Don't run yum -y
That just lets it go into robot mode - all confirmation queries 
in the normal yum process are answered with an auto 'y' key 
code. If you don't use the -y option, you get a confirmation 
dialog which you can minimally glance at and see if anything's 
amiss - it will tell you if it's going to remove something and 
give you the chance to say no.
