You can always download updates individually via ftp.
There IS always a risk with these bigger upgrades. The upgrade to 4.2
brought a bug in the dmraid(?) package that broke my home Linux server. It
took help on this site to finally find the problem, which was in the
upstream provider's version.

Subject: [CentOS] Forced upgrade to 4.3 ?
I have Centos 4.2 and I run yum update periodically and manually when
security patches are released, etc. Today I saw the sendmail security
update and although I don't use sendmail (I use Postfix) I ran "yum update"
and got a huge list of 93 packages to update. I presume this is to upgrade
to 4.3. As this is a production server I'm nervous about doing an update
Is there a way to not go to 4.3, or should I just go on and load it? I have
a few packages I loaded from source, all related to my mail system (dcc,
razor, amavisd-new, spamassassin). I'm worried about the 4.3 update hosing
