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!!!
