Just want to point out that Seth is potentially wrong on that. He has 
very little to do with yum on CentOS and is often only commenting on 
whats the latest version of yum. Also as was clarified at the time of 
release for 5.2, there are lots of ways in which an update and an 
upgrade could give you different results.
