up2date question

I really like the up2date icon on the screen letting me know of updates and what not. However, I do not like up2date. I would rather use yum. Is there a way to:

1. configure the red hat update manager to use yum instead of up2date

2. configure an icon for yum that will let me know of updates?


(Fedora Core 3)

It use's the same repo's. So if the Icon is flashing saying you have updates then:

Open a terminal and type 'yum update' this will update all of your packages.

Once yum has installed all packages, then up2date icon should stop flashing.
