    huh?
    i don't understand why they would use that mozilla version

    anyway, i noticed that on the new features page they listed KDE3 before Gnome... so maybe Redhat will finally choose KDE over Gnome like so many other distro's already have

    Can up2date be used to install new packages or only to update existing ones (is it as powerfull as apt-get on Debian?) If yes, I'll give it a try.

    May be KP knows but as far as I can check with man up2date, there is no option for updating versions ( unlike apt-get dist-upgrade ). May be there is ( as I said, I have never used it yet ). As far as upgrading packages, it works well. I have never had a problem since I got my 7.2 in beta ( later upgraded with a CD ROM version ). Red Hat networks is usually busy for us non-paying customers but which is understandable since I'm thankful that they offer free service at all ( usually works great at night times ).
