Anything that takes longer than 30 minutes is better solved with a
re-install (with Windows).
Too bad that you have to re-install all the shiny applications, too
(which takes ages, usually).
But then, CentOS throws most of its stuff in /usr/bin and /bin, too, so
you can't differentiate between "OS" and applications, either.
I'd rather have a "base" install and a separate directory with "all the
rest". And of course, two different RPM-dbs, too.
