In the near future I intend to replace Fedora 9 with 10. My
bandwidth allotment is limited by the satellite provider I
use so I have been installing the "Live CD"
version and adding to that with yum. I rarely use the Gnome
desktop beyond the initial install, replacing that with XFCE
which works best for me. However it requires a lot of
initial configuration to create what I want. That can take
a week or more to get everything "just right."
But then I have a second computer to deal with, similar to
this one which will also need the same configuration. I can
easily transfer files between them but it's still a lot
of work and takes nearly as much time as the first one.
There's also a third ...
It seems I must be doing something wrong? Can anyone
suggest the optimum approach? I ideally I should be able to
simply copy directories between boxes/users it seems.

controversial (I saved the emails):
supposed to work F9->F10
(1) run preupdate
(2) continue yum updates
Bingo! you have F10 without downloading F10 DVD ISO (2-3 hours for me)
be sure to save files first...sounds risky!
Yes I am aware of preupdate, even downloaded it to this computer but
that still wont get a new user set up with my configured XFCE desktop on
a "new" computer I just built. The new one has F-9 on it but I'm still
looking for an easier way to set the user configuration. I did a lot of
work on it the other day manually and somehow it did not save. I
thought I checked the appropriate box to save the setup but on the next
boot I was back to the default! Needles to say I was discouraged and
have been avoiding it.
