John,

Would you like to take a first crack at the text for
the migration center?  You could then run it by this
group.  

If we get something that is good enough not to get
shot down here, I will work it into the web site.  

If we decide to go with separate sites, the text could
just be copied over, so there would be no wasted
effort.

I think another thing we should have is a 'migration
centre' which can 
help people decide what product and procedure to use
to upgrade from 
various distros.

Something along the lines of:
RedHat 7.2 -> reinstall with CentOS-2
            -> reinstall with CentOS-3.1
            -> reinstall with cAos
            -> live update to CentOS-2
RedHat 9   -> reinstall CentOS-3.1
            -> live update to CentOS-3.1
RHEL 2.1   -> live update to CentOS-2
RHEL 3     -> live update to CentOS-3

And I am sure there are more.  For each procedure,
instructions and 
pitfalls etc can be listed, perhaps with community
feedback etc.
