If what you are calling "my server" is really a server you should be
running something stable and long lived like CentOS on it anyway and not
a fast-track distribution such as Fedora.

If you are waiting for Fedora to 'fix' anaconda and release another
Fedora 8 DVD I think that you will have a long wait. Fedora has never
released a second DVD that I know of anyway.

Various people have had problems with this update path for various
reasons. And some here have offered help and advice. But I do not recall
anyone mentioning writing a bugzilla ticket. That would be the way to
get better results. Better than posting about it on a general user help
list. One that most developers don't follow.

I really have no idea just how many have had problems such as this. Nor
do I have any idea how many did not have problems such as this. Those
without problems seldom post success stories. But I would be willing to
bet that there have been many more successes than failures.  ;-)

Good luck.
