[LON-CAPA-admin] updating Fedora Core

I am afraid it's pretty much hopeless to update from Fedora Core 6 to  
Core 10.

You want to back up your /home as well as relevant config files from / 
etc elsewhere, and install the machine from scratch. See http://www.lon-capa.org/hardwareupgrade.html 
  for a list of relevant files - the instructions themselves are of  
course irrelevant, as you are not changing hardware and don't have two  
servers running in parallel.

I would recommend to make the jump to CentOS - the Fedora stuff is too  
flaky for a server.
