 Is there a standard way to manage the .rpmnew files created on "yum

My suggestion is to yum install meld, then
meld /etc/something.rpmnew /etc/something

This way you can see any notes that might be in the rpmnew file about how to set new parameters, etc, and graphically pull those new elements into your existing config file.
