Backup and Recover

Hi All,

I've recently installed Red Hat 5 on a PC in my home. I have a couple questions. When I go to update the install, after a reboot, my monitor goes into standby. I think it is the xorg-X11 updates. Anyway, my quetions are 1) what is the best way to backup the current configuration? I'm tired of reinstalling. 2) How do I back out an update that is crashing the system?

Do a search for RPM transaction rollback. It may or may not still be option in update system.
