i am just talking about the i386 right now, but i assume it would apply to
both.  the updates necessary to get 3.3 to 3.4 will be in the 3.3 patch
tree and after they are applied, my systems will look at a 3.4 patch tree?  
is that the basic model?  i am also trying to figure out how to change my
patch mirror.

i know that scheduled quarterly updates was a part of the redhat 
enterprise model.  once redhat has rolled from u3 to u4, i am assuming 
that they no longer provide security patches for u3, right?  so therefore 
centos wouldn't have patches for 3.3 after 3.4 is official?
