Good advice. I didn't think about long term, though, just renaming is 
quickly done and he can get going (if that was the problem) quickly while 
starting to comment out or actually fix it ...
BTW: I'd expect newer config files go to *.rpmnew. I have done too few 
upgrades on CentOS to know if that expectation is valid.
