Thanks.  I guess my question would be more pertinent once FC5 betas
start.

 
If you want to run rawhide.

cd /etc/yum.repos.d

Change the following to "enabled=0"
fedora.repo
fedora-updates.repo
fedora-extras.repo

Change the following to "enable=1"
fedora-devel.repo
fedora-extras-devel.repo

or a little sed script

cd /etc/yum.repos.d
vi mv2rawhide.sh

#!/bin/bash
echo ---- Hold on to your HardDrive, were going RawHide!!!----------
echo
sed 's/enabled=1/enabled=0/' fedora.repo > temp ; mv -f temp fedora.repo
echo --
sed 's/enabled=1/enabled=0/' fedora-updates.repo > temp ; mv -f temp fedora-updates.repo
echo ------
sed 's/enabled=1/enabled=0/' fedora-extras.repo > temp ; mv -f temp fedora-extras.repo
echo -------------
sed 's/enabled=0/enabled=1/'  fedora-devel.repo > temp ; mv -f temp fedora-devel.repo
echo --------------------
sed 's/enabled=0/enabled=1/'  fedora-extras-devel.repo > temp ; mv -f temp fedora-extras-devel.repo
echo All done, lets mv to rawhide now!
echo
echo Performing yum update
yum update
echo Reboot and have fun!
exit

chmod +x mv2rawhide.sh
