I installed my box with Mythdora, so I'll have to check if they have any
updates for F8. If not, how did you upgrade? Did you upgrade to a
stock F8 installation, then add Myth afterwards? Did you pull in the
latest packages from atrpms? I assume that I'd have to tuck my database
away somewhere if I went this route, correct?
