I have two older machines that have FC1 that I want to update FC4. 
One has a number of users, and I would want to backup the users, 
passwords, and home directories, then clean install of the machine, 
and then reset the users, passwords, and home directories. Did a 
Google search, but got way to many hits, and after 10 pages didn't 
find anything close. I had tried to upgrade from FC1 to FC4 with the 
CDs, but it failed, so I restored the image back to the FC1. 

The other system is easier, in that it only has a few IDs, but it has 9 
ethernet ports. Eth0 connects to the campus backbone, and the 
other 8 are designed to provide separate private networks to various 
labs with dhcp and iptables. Note sure if I can just copy the setup, or 
have to redo it from scratch. One 3 Com card, and 2 - 4port adaptec 

I'm sure there is a HOWTO on this, but I did find the correct search 
words to find it. Have a month before the next semester starts.
