Me, too :-) In my case, yum worked fine. Extremely slow but it did the
job. The upgrade from CentOS 3.1 to 3.3 took more than three hours.
Had to do it in stages, since the whole upgrade required more space
than the systems hard disk has left. Actually I upgraded kernel and
glibc stuff first, then library stuff and finally after yum clean I
finished with OpenOffice stuff. I don't know if the full upgrade would
have worked, if the hard disk would have been bigger. It's only 8GB.
