a quick sumup:
synaptic is a nice GUI for apt.
up2date is only usefull to show pending updates
yum is only usefull after fc2 (IMO), unless you are dealing with
So for fc<3, use apt. For fc>3, use yum. If x86_64, use yum.
That is the simple explanation.

Well, as long as yum is working -- which seems to take a lot more and more
frequent tweaking -- I prefer it to up2date. (I haven't really tried
synaptic yet; haven't even run it.) So at least on the FC1 machines, I
should remove the launchers on the panel for up2date.
Any advice as between synaptic and yum? I presume each has pros and cons.
