thx again-i'll wait and see what happens. i use xd2 mainly just because
i was curious and therefore installed it, but taken aside the much
better-looking vera-fonts and the nicer looking ooo, it has really no
real benefits over rh9, so i might go back to fedora.
oh well, looks like another backup-tweaking-session...;-(

ps: do you know if at least the updates/fixes of the
fedora-core-packages will be provided via rhn (just as with rhl), or
will they get distributed via reps.? 
unfortunately, the bits of information shattered across the fedora-pages
(need to get cleaned up and updated) aren't exactly very clear about
this point!
i like yum and apt4rpm for installation of additional packages, but for
updating the whole system, up2date is more comfortable.
