Yes - I am working on it today :)

Maybe - If you did not exclude the kernel from [base] and [updates] per
the instructions here:
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/4.2/centosplus/Readme.txt

Then yes, you will have the newer kernel ... that is not a centosplus
kernel.

Maybe - If you needed something in the CentOS Plus kernel (ntfs,
reiserfs, xfs, video4linux, appletalk, etc.) then that is probably no
longer functioning.
