Also, when comparing MAJOR versions of CentOS (that is 5.x to 6.x)
please remember that there is a fairly major time difference between
these releases when compared to other non-enterprise Linux versions. 
Doing 5.x to 6.x is like comparing Fedora 6 to Fedora 12.  That is a
fairly big jump in technology.
