Is this really FESCO material though? Isn't this just more general usage
questions? (honestly these systems seem more suited for a platform with less
frequent releases, like RHEL or CentOS).
Upgrading with yum is mostly OK, there are a few gotchas regarding some
changes that have gone into the kernel.
Upgrading from i386 to x86_64 is going to be a MUCH more difficult task.
I'm jut not sure what you're looking for out of FESCO on this.
