[Centos] Upgrading Fedora Core 1 to CentOS

Yes it is all the reason why we want to change to Centos (longer EOL), and
we think the stability in RHE should be worth something. It's not always the
best to run the newest and the best especially on a production server. 

So is there anyway to do it other than from yum or to manually force install
all the rpm downloaded in the cache?

Agreed, from a stability and lifecycle perspective, CentOS is much better
than (and in my opinion an upgrade to) Fedora Core 1.  

But from a package perspective, many of the items in an up2date Fedora Core
1 install are newer than the packages in CentOS, so they won't upgrade via
yum (since the installed Fedora Core 1 packages are already newer).
