All of /home should be moved over as it contains all the LON-CAPA data and 
all of the construction spaces as well.  /etc/httpd/conf/loncapa.conf needs 
to be moved.  loncapa.conf holds the LON-CAPA settings for your machine 
(machine id, domain, etc).  That should pretty much be it.

If you have any comments on the Fedora install, I'd like to hear them. 

You may want to make sure the afa utilities (afaapps-2.6-1.i386.rpm is what 
we have installed on our servers) will work under Fedora.  The afa utilities 
allow you to manage the scsi disks in the server without having to reboot 
the system.
