why cant you just 'su -l' and move upto root ?
Sorry, this probably has something to do with me being a newbie. I
don't know what 'su -l' is or what you mean by "moving up to root".
You will see from my other posting that I got it to work by clearing
the cache: 'rm -fr /var/cache/yum/base':

yum list updates, thats what you want. There is no such command
Actually, there is. I ran both just to be on the safe die ;-)

Yup. Worked like a charm. Thanks.

you can rerun kudzu with various options once the machine is
running, look at the man page for more info
I have done that, but I don't really understand the man page. Newbie
alert!!! Actually, I think the kudzu problem could be directly
related to a usb (driver???) error message I get right at the start
of the boot process.

once your machine is updated, run system-config-sound, that will
find and activate your sound card fine.
I ran 'system-config-sound' after having run 'yum check-update', 'yum
list updates' and 'yum update' + a reboot. I got an error message.
Sorry I can't be more specific.
