Well, I assumed from the title of the message that Centos-5.2 had been
"officially released".
I did in fact look on the Centos web-site, and I deduced from that
(possibly wrongly) that Centos-5.2 was to be released a couple of days ago.

When I say I am a complete newbie, I should say that my server
has been running under Centos-5.1 for several months.
I haven't had to do anything to it,
so in that sense I am a newbie.
I have been running Fedora on my laptops since Fedora first came out,
so am reasonably familiar with the general setup.

I like to keep reasonably up-to-date with distributions I am running,
so would like to update to Centos-5.2 as and when it is released.
