I'm in the same position, Dave.  My current (but soon to be replaced) server
is running RH9.  I just installed the legacy yum (thanks Matt Kettler for
pointing this out) but on running yum update I find I've a list of 85
updates which I'm loathe to install on a live server unless they're
absolutely critical - see for the
list yum presented to me.

I reckon my best option is to wait for the updated Sendmail to be put on and use the "yum
install <packagename>" option to install just the updated Sendmail.

Does that make sense?
