fwiw I've just upgraded from 4.3 (new install done after RHEL 4.4, 
before CentOS 4.4) to 4.4. The upgrade went smoothly with yum, no 
special actions. I was a little surprised to see a new kernel; I updated 
grub's menu to boot the one I'm already running, thank you ver much!.

I've not rebooted, I'd do that when I'm in the same room and it's not 
downloading Debian.
