Re: RedHat 9 upgrade

Hi Barry,

Thanks for the tip - I've looked at Centos and it looks brilliant. Only
trouble is, I'm not sure which version to go for - CentOS 2, 3 or 4, as
I'm still not totally familiar with all the intricacies of Linux. RedHat
9 was pretty easy to install and set up, so can I cope with CentOS?
