As Tomeu and Walter said - copying 0.84 over 0.82 won't work. There are 
some dependencies (xulrunner/hulahop, abiword, evince...) - and of 
course - the kernel - the hardware support for the XO. There are efforts 
from Chris Ball and the Fedora-Olpc working group 
(fedora-olpc-l...@redhat.com). Please refer to their work to know the 
current status.
