im following your theory on recommendation yet not following based upon my
scenario right now.

maybe i should clarify...

i am ssh'ing into a bash shell on a CentOS 4.1 server at a datacenter. it is
just a backup dns server and so if i lose after a reboot, ill be ok.

my access connection can go up and down at times so i was hoping that i
could do a 

yum -y update &

and later just come back and reboot it into 4.2

good idea or not? if not, please explain and thanks

if i have to, ill install screen, yet will this simple yum update idea
