Frank,

Will this work on an old 32-bit Thinkpad that's maxed out with 512MB of

You can try upgrading piecemeal. Some major set of packages, python,

Rahul,

That's what I was thinking. The roadblock I run into with a conventional

[ 7.076671] Trying to unpack rootfs image as initramfs...

I don't think a yum upgrade tries to do that, but I'm not certain.
