For those of us migrating from ancient versions of Fedora, what gotchas 
might one expect?

I'm working on migrating from a pre-SELinux Fedora, and SELinux has been 
the biggest headache so far. I'm also expecting to migrate Dovecot from 
0.99 to 1.0, and there's a page on the Dovecot wiki about that. I've seen 
the recent list traffic about BIND's lack of default config, so I'm 
expecting that, and it's not a problem.

My plan is to install CentOS to a new box, and migrate services one by one 
as needed.
