Well, I never heard of a Fedora 9.1 distribution
that could be "yum upgrade"d to Fedora 9.2 .
IIRC, when RedHat (occasionally) had versions 8.1 and 8.2
they were completely different.

Sorry to be dumb, but what is the point of calling it Centos-5.2?
Is it just that if installing Centos from scratch,
one could download a more up-to-date version?
