i totally screwed up the the conversion across the products.  i can definitely see how this would be a disaster.  

if you took my original question and substituted fedora 6 where i had stated fedora 10 in error and asked the same questions, would that make more sense?  would i then be able to install a fedora 6 rpm on a centOS 5 system from a compatibility standpoint?

sorry for the confusion.

i didn't know this existed.  obviously this would be the best place to pull the rpms from.  

but in theory ;-).. could i safely install a fedora *6* rpm on a centOS 5 based install
