FWIW, I upgraded machines from FC3 and FC4 to 5 and while it set up okay
and got running, I had to manually remove the old kernel(-devel)s before I
could use yum anywhere the kernel packages (e.g. for update). If I tried
to use yum it went to something like checking transactions and just stuck
there. I eventually wound up listing them with rpm -qa and removing them
Hmm. What's more I currently have two FC5 kernels installed, which implies
it's not turfing the old kernels, although they _are_ different versions
(2.6.15 and 2.6.16).
