Well, I suppose “upgraded” is a better term, it now runs FC3.
I still have my Redhat 9.0 disks, it was the first Linux I ever got along with well, and it’s still a good choice for a basic server on older hardware. But progress ‘n’ all that, it had to go.
So bye-bye Server3 Redhat 2.4 kernel, and hello Server3 FC3 2.6 kernel.
BTW, took the “upgrade” route and it did pretty well, samba is properly configured and the filesystem is intact - desktop isn’t great but I can soon fix that. It even preserved my VNC server settings so I could remote login straightaway - not bad for a “prickly” Linux install eh?
