Hi All,

Thanks for the replies.  Sorry to get anything started.  I should have 
been more clear up front.  I have been looking at FC for a while now and 
I knew that you could upgrade from RHL to FC, with little or no trouble. 
  And I also knew that from RHL you can not do an upgrade to 
RHEL/CentOS.  I was looking at doing a fresh install from scratch even 
with FC.  From  some of the stories I have read, I figured a fresh 
install would be easier for me.  Besides I need the practice in 
remembering where everything is.  Like cups, firewall scripts, login 
scripts, samba scripts, etc., etc., etc., haha!!!

The main reason I was shifting to CentOS is because of the longer life 
cycle.  I have enjoyed my RH9 now for the past 2+ years without any 
troubles.  I have decided over the past couple of months that FC is a 
little to bleeding edge for me right now.  Next year about this time, 
that is another story.

But though, can I say that by using mediacheck in RH9 and checking my 
CentOS ISO's and them Passing, is this a valid check???

Anyways enough eating up bandwith, Thanks again!!!
