Installing FC5 and still going

Yesterday I finally found a few spare moments to go ahead and start upgrading my Fedora Core 4 box to Fedora Core 5. I don't know if it's because I'm doing the upgrade instead of the new installation, but it's still going this morning. Granted there was the 12 hour break between going home and coming back to work, so all together I'd say the upgrade process has taken about 7 hours so far, and I'm only on disk 4 of 5.

Each time a new CD goes in, the installer spends a good long time (maybe an hour or so?) doing this 'Preparing transaction from installation source' thing before it gets to actually installing any of the packages. Not quite sure what's going on during this time, but there's a heck of a lot of disk activity happening. Maybe it's just this computer...

I figure at this rate the upgrade should be finished by the time I go home today and I'll be able to start messing with FC5 tomorrow.
