I wish we had an IT staff, but unfortunately what we have is me and the
skill set I have learned from reading a bunch of manuals and the good
people on this list and others.

I am the one that installed yum-cron, but I did not change any of the
standard repositories.  The only thing I did different on this machine
is to perform an upgrade from F11 to F13 instead of a new install.

Thanks again for your help!!!
