How about a shell alias for yum which prints a reminder about FreeNX and 
waits several seconds before starting yum to give you a chance to CTRl-C 
it first?

Having the alias detect whether you're within a FreeNX session before 
actually running yum would be a neat trick, but is beyond my ability to 
script (if it's even possible).
