Hi All,


I've a question on upgrading Centos with the least downtime...


I've a centos 4.6 machine, hosting my local Centos respository.  I'd
like to upgrade the OS to 5.1


I've practised in a VMware machine upgrading it by booting from a CD,
but I wondered if YUM could do it, whilst keeping the rest of the
machine "alive".


Am I better to shutdown and upgrade, or is yum really *that* good?
