    Nope. I was stupid enough to try and upgrade a FC2 with FC5 and the 
upgrade went real good. It went to completion and then it said reboot 
and come back up. I did so and there is NO WAY in HECK this thing will 
come up. There is a mixture of FC2 and FC5 in /boot/ and /boot/grub/ and 
I spent a few hours trying to get it going and gave up. I had lots of 
Error 15: File not found and other non-helpful error messages.

    This mess I plan to put on a portable hard drive and take it over to 
Computer Engineering at NMSU and let them use it as a final exam.
