Side-grade from Fedora Core 8 to CentOS 5.4

From: Russell McOrmond <russell@flora.ca>

   I am server-by-server migrating from Fedora Core (8 from a few years 
ago) to the latest CentOS.  This is not an upgrade or downgrade, but a 
side-grade given many of the packages are at similar versions even 
though CentOS 5.4 (The community re-compiled version of RedHat 
Enterprise Linux) continues to receive security updates while FC8 does not.

   There will be intermittent outages during the upgrades.  I'm not able 
to specify specific times as I'm doing this between other projects.

  Last evening I migrated the calcutta.flora.ca virtual server ( 
primarily http://www.flora.org ).  Minor issues were fixed this morning 
that was disabling some users from using FTP to manage their sites.

   Remaining is http://newdelhi.flora.ca (various websites, mailman 
mailing lists)  , hugli.flora.ca (mail/dns services) and then westbengal 
(XEN DOM0 that hosts the above 3 servers).

   I also hope to take this opportunity to upgrade the RAID 
configuration on westbengal.
