Let me add the the above. It has been suggested that my yum did not work
because I upgraded rather than installed. I am re-installing to settle
this but I remember clearly that I formatted th drives during the
previous install so it could not have been an upgrade. The fc5 Rpms that
showed up must have been introduced by yum, pirut or the system upgrade
messages I keep getting.

My contention is still that one of these programs is screwing this up
but we will see. If no one else finds this happening to them I will have
to concede that I am  wrong. We will see.
