        I thought that you need some kind of bootdisk to run anaconda.  Can you
run an anaconda upgrade from a running FC5 system?  Also, since doing an
upgrade via yum or net both go over the 'Net, is there a significant
difference between them?

You do need some kind of bootable mechanism to run the anaconda
installer, however it doesn't have to be a CD.  USB key, PXEboot, etc
all work fine.  The difference is that using anaconda is a 'supported'
method for upgrading whereas yum is not.
