Convert CENTOS 6 server to Scientific Linux 6


This guide came about from a post on the Linode forum (http://forum.linode.com/viewtopic.php?t=7454) and I thought it might be useful to have on file for myself and anyone else that might find this blog. The below are steps needed to change a CENTOS 6 server over to a Scientific Linux 6 server as they are both based on RHEL sources but SL is updated more often and seems to be gaining traction as CENTOS loses it with slow updates & releases. I did make a minor change from the initial post (changing distroverpkg) and then the formatting but otherwise the steps were laid out by tolle.
