Hi Seth,
I moved this thread over from the rpm list since it is now a yum question.

Given the discussions on upgrading RHL 8.0 to rpm 4.1.1 and given that 
I would then need to upgrade yum is this something I can let yum do or do 
I need to go to the machines and do it from the rpm command line??

I am wondering if this might be a chicken and an egg thing. If I upgrade rpm to
4.1.1 will the 1.0.x yum be able to upgrade itself to 1.97+ or If I upgrade yum
first will yum 1.97+ be able to upgrade rpm to 4.1.1. It is not really that big
a deal to do it by hand t is only 3 or 4 machines but if you tell me it should
work I would like to test it. I will most likely use the latest yum daily to
do this.
