One trick is:
	yum update yum
	yum update [a-e]*
	yum update [f-j]*
	yum update [k-m]*
	yum update [m-p]*
	yum update [q-w]*
	yum update [x-z]*
	yum update [A-M]*
	yum update [O-Z]*
	yum update
	yum-complete-transaction

Inserting a
	yum clean all
between transactions might help some users.
The ranges are SWAG.  A yum update will
give a list and the user can adjust to
pick off blocks as needed.

Note that yum is critical as are rpm tools
and sqlite.  The first line might be improved

	yum update yum rpm* sqlite python-sqlite2

Other tricks may apply...
