Had I yum updated on my desktop computer I believe everything would have
been fine (as it was on my laptop). But I tried the Update path from the DVD
first, without doing any preparation or reading and, though it booted fine,
a lot of my programs failed -- even Firefox until I ran yum update.
Fortunately I had backed everything up -- and I had a couple issues that
made a clean install a good idea anyhow. The clean install went flawlessly.

Only thing... I tried to like the new wallpaper, but eventually Googled and
found the old version. I just like the plain CentOS 5 wallpaper better.
(Yeah, I'm bland.)

Thanks to everyone.
