Turning off Auto Updates

After using Suse for awhile, I learned my leason... Dont update the system unless you absolutely need to. One of the issues with SuSe was the complete lack to go backwords if an update caused a system crash.

Now that I am running (and am happy) with Fedora 7, I want to take this new knowledge to heart. I either want to insure a way to return the system back to a normal state (without backing up) or I want to simply disable the auto updates.

If you do disable auto updates, watch the changelog for updates that you REALLY need, IE security related ones
