David,

I got pretty far along, with a little manual removal of the stock stuff,
but I think I've missed something. Here's my current status from an rpm
-qa yum\*

yum-kmod-1.1.16-13.el4.hrb.1
yum-list-data-1.1.16-13.el4.hrb.1
yum-fastestmirror-1.1.16-13.el4.hrb.1

yum-security-1.1.16-13.el4.hrb.1

The yum-refresh-updatesd has not made it in yet. It had a dependancy
failure prior to getting all the above installed, so I excluded it and
continued on.

Anyway, after getting to the above status, I did a yum update and got
the following

Traceback (most recent call last):

If you see any error in where I'm at, or need more information, just let
me know.
