I would like to know.

     1. If I were to install XD2, will it currupt my current install?
        Will it overwrite it, or will it just install it into a
        different path?
     2. Can I upgrade say Evolution (I'm on 1.4.5) to 1.4.6 only and not
        have everything else screwed up?

No idea.  Haven't tried installing over nyquist.  It shouldn't "corrupt"
anything, so long as you don't run "rpm -Uvh --evil" or its equivalents
(and as long as post(un)install scripts don't fail).  Bear in mind that
XD2 is Gnome 2.2, so simple "rpm -Uvh" or its equivalent simply wouldn't
work.  The XD2 installer will warn you if it needs to uninstall any
packages, and it will presumably downgrade many of them if you run it.

There is such an option as --evil?? hehe
But what I normally do is just that.. rpm -Uvh *rpm

An Evo install is certainly simpler and is less likely to cause problems
for you.
It does need to upgrade some stuffs though.. But speaking of which, it
seems that red-carpet will not show me the evo 1.4.6 stuffs. It must've
detected my 1.4.5, and only offering me the option of upgrading to
evo-devel-1.4.6 and evo-pilot-1.4.6


Long story cut short. I'm definately gonna skip item 1. Item 2, well,
I'm really afraid of screwing things up. 

Darn it. I'm in a rock and a hard place.
