	Oh, so up2date is defaulting to yum?  That's cool.  I didn't
realize that.

	Actually, that's strange...  'cause the little ball applet
(The RedHat Network Alert Notification Tool) would change to indicate
new updates available before I had a chance to download and update my
local repositories, which is what I had yum configured to access instead
of the default ones.  Is the applet using something else?  I just
assumed that the applet and up2date were in sync.

	Oh, I see now...  It comes down in the channel information when
you first run up2date that those channels are yum repositories.  I hadn't
run up2date with Fedora Core before (because it sucked so badly in
previous releases).  Learn something new.  Very cool.
