Thanks Tom. 8.1 has some very tempting features.... running it on the
windows box ... ayah but I like the lazy days approach of having yum do
the updates so guess the FC4 box will have to await the release of FC5.<br>

Nope.  FC4 is locked to the PG 8.0.x release series.  This goes along
with Red Hat's normal approach to release engineering: upgrades do not
introduce any significant incompatibilities.

PG 8.1 is in Fedora Rawhide == FC5-to-be.

You can forcibly install any version you like, but it won't be maintained
by the Red Hat/Fedora infrastructure if you do --- at that point it's
on your own head to update the package as needed.
