I would make a solid backup of /home and /etc and do a clean install  
of Centos. I can't remember if there is any other place you want to  
backup - Stuart or someone else may be able to help here. Restoring / 
home takes care of getting your LON-CAPA information back into place.

If /home is on a separate volume, you can opt to not reformat this  

I went to Centos a few years ago from Fedora and have appreciated the  
longer lifecycle.
