FC4->FC5 upgrade notes

1. Before starting, remove all but the latest kernel-devel package. If
you have 3rd party products like VMware that require you to run a make
or install script whenever you upgrade the kernel, you probably have
multiple kernel-devel packages installed. Having more than one installed
will add hours to this upgrade.

2. After the upgrade, remove any iiimf-qt package(s) before running yum
update. If those packages are installed, they will raise a couple of
dependency errors that will cause the yum update to fail:

Error: Missing Dependency: libiiimcf.so.3 is needed by package iiimf-qt
Error: Missing Dependency: libiiimp.so.1 is needed by package iiimf-qt

Today, two weeks after the FC5 ISOs were released, there are 136
packages updates to an "everything" install.

3. Paragon must develop a patch for their commercial NTFS driver before
you'll be able to install and use it with FC5. :-(
