Actually, I would think that MOST things in fc6 would be newer.

It would be very hard to get all the CentOS things upgraded (I would 
think).  Maybe it would work.

I would run something like:

rpm -qa --qf 'name %{distribution}\n' after the initial yum upgrade (if 
it completes) and figure out how to do it.

In fact, I would setup a VM with the same package list and upgrade that 
as a test and NEVER do it on an important live system as the first upgrade.
