As far as I can tell, RH does not announce all updates to RHEL4.

btw I just discovered my FC6 test system busily trying to update itself, 
without my consent.

My consent would certainly be withheld, there's no way I can track FC 
updates through a modem, especially with all the stuff I do want.

FC6 may well find itself replaced with Debian.
