I must admit after I hit that scary enter key with the word "reboot" on the screen, it was a mad dash to open up the command prompt and start pinging until I recieved a reply. On a side note, when I used up2date, I recieved quite a few RPM packages that range from XFree86 all the way to PHP, is it a good idea to go through and update all of those packages that are related to the system (xWindows is not needed on my box, I know that packages like that should be skipped). For example, PHP was one of the packages that was not up to date. If I upgrade PHP will I run into problems with people relying on an older more widely used version of PHP? I know with PHP5 comming out, it is not exactly backwards compatible.
