The only thing that's different about Pink Tie is that the
redhat-logos package was replaced, and a few instances of the word
"RedHat" got changed. The main gotcha is that these days, when you do
an upgrade of RedHat, it looks at /etc/issue to confirm that you're
updating RedHat and not another distro of Linux. Well, Pink Tie
changes /etc/issue... so the installer don't show you upgrade as an
