Yes, I believe it does.  You now have the latest and greatest packages -
probably 95+% of what will be on the isos, but of course you haven't
been able to try the install process for Fedora 1 yet.  The "auto-magic
change" had to do with updates you installed, not the date.

I suspect your machine and mine look very much like a freshly installed
Fedora Core 1, but hopefully the isos will contain cleaned up menus and
other small items which have gotten clobbered by all the up2date stages.
