There's one available at



|| From Brad Cox:
||  I'm upgrading from RH8.0 to Fedora via the CD "update" (not clean 
||  install) option. Seems the second CD is marginal (cheap distro) 
||  because several files weren't found until I retried them. Eventually 
||  failed altogether toward the end of the 2nd CD. I removed the CD and 
||  rebooted and it came up in Fedora just fine, missing only httpd.
||  However it apparently didn't update yum.conf since /etc/yum.conf 
||  still points to RH8.0 repos. I'm inclined to avoid the flakey CD 
||  altogether and complete the upgrade with yum upgrade. Am I right that 
||  this is the right thing to do? If so I'll need to manually change 
||  yum.conf before trying this, right? Where can I get a fedora 
||  yum.conf? PS: There's an /etc/yum.conf.rpmnew but that's for 8.0 too.
