John,

I did not hear back from you right away.  Maybe doing
all the combinations is too big a job for one person. 
It might work if we split them up.  

I could do these two:

RedHat 9   -> reinstall CentOS-3.1
RedHat 9   -> live update to CentOS-3.1

I am volunteering for these because I already have
RedHat 9 and CentOS-3.1 CD's.  

The only rub is on Saturday I go on vacation, and at
the end of August I will be back to where I have my
computer junk.  I could do those two in early
September.  

Any other volunteers for any of the other
combinations?

My offer to work it all into the web site still
stands.

Rick
