Duh!  I'm subbed to both, and sort them to a common mailbox, sorry.

I put my repo list back in place after the 2.1.3 install overwrote it.

I went after 2.1.3 because of so many messages about 2.1.2 being 
fubar, and my own FC2 2.0.7 had quit working, always exiting with a 
library not available to upgrade samba.  So samba is half busted  
here, I can mount my old 7.3 firewalls drives, but the firewall 
cannot mount my drives, something about the security model changing.
As this was quite some time back, I haven't been able to use the yum 
util to keep the system up2date in a couple of months.

So what version of yum should I have installed and *working* on an FC2 
>name=Fedora Core $releasever - Development Tree

Which is the wrong branch for me, my bad.  And I should seperate these 
lists into their own folder, but kmails folder list is more than 
screen high now.
