	Sic?? Do you really mean upGRADE?? unless I'm very deeply 
mistaken, I have not used that, ever, on any machine. (I've done a lot of 
upgrading, but always with media, under anaconda on the media.)

	Or is it a typo for "yum update," as I'm guessing?

	OK; and after the yum command above (whichever), start doing "yum 
remove" against individual items other than Opera, etc??
