Upgrading from FC3 to FC4

as i said, upgrading is not as enjoyable as it's supposed to be literally. directly upgrading via yum is troublesome and not encouraged for ordernary users. i have to say it really pissed my off today. after all it's not worth the effort since fresh installation is just better, faster and more predictable.

one of the things i experienced for a new installation is worth some words. if you use the old home folder in the new system, the first startup tends to overwrite the existing .bashrc and .bash_profile files. i don't know if it's just an edged bug of gnome or sth. other things went fairly well so far.
