But one that is very unlikely to succeed. RHEL 5/CentOS 5 are based on FC6. The
OP said he was running F8. This would be a downgrade in terms of package
versions. Because CentOS packages always have higher version numbers than the
corresponding RHEL packages, converting from RHEL5 to CentOS is trivial.
Downgrading a system without reinstalling is not.
