You are way in the Testing guide is just fine, i just described a way
using yumex, because it is easier to find the stuff to be remove on a
FC4 system with a lot of 3 party stuff, there are making dependency
troubles when updating to Rawhide and i want use the the best mirror
detection included in the lastest yumex release to speedup the package
download by using the most updated and fastest mirrors.
