            OK, it has a README, but I mean one that gave a little detail, background, exp, class, hit points etc.

            Totally Agree! this program rocks! The thing I liked was the ability to control which rpm's I wanted/needed to update. It was a little vague on the install process but everything else was seemless... HIGHLY USEFUL!!!

            A wonderful utility
            With the demise of the anonymouse up2date in Red Hat Linux, this utility is incredibly valuable. And it beats the heck out of downloading the individual updates for your system. Plus it's easily scriptable, even more so than up2date, which would refuse to install certain things.
