    FreeBSD (not an easy upgrade)
    Redhat9 (Purchase the progeny membership so you still get the RPMs)
    RHEL (requies a format/reinstall)

    Spend a few bucks and purchase a progeny membership :)

    Thanks for the reply,

    You can keep RH9 for another year and a half, at least. Legacy will be providing updates for this long, and cPanel will be pushing them through automatically as long as they are available.

    Are these updates include new kernels or just RPMs?

    No kernels. You will have to download and install those yourself. It's really not difficult at all.

    The download site for the kernels is:
    http://download.fedoralegacy.org/
    There will be a 9.0 section once the EOL has arrived.

    However, fedoralegacy has been quite a ways behind with 7.3 and 8 already, I have little faith in them with 9. Pay the few extra dollars to progeny. :)

    It is an easy upgrade to Fedora which lots have had good luck with. Would require more updates.

    hmmm.. why wouldn't you guys just suggest Fedora? I know its open-source and does not get funding, but I'm sure there are a lot of people who'd be willing to get it fix and updated.

    It's cheap too. Isn't it kind of like Red Hat Linux 10?

    I personaly wouldn't suggest it due to Fedora being a development project that isn't suggested for Production environments due to the shear number of updates & changes that go on with the code as well as the release cycle. True you'll get tons of bug fixes & security patches but you'll also find you're doing alot of patches as well as troubleshooting random bugs.

    I'm running FreeBSD 5.2 without a problem currently but am going to update to 5.2.1 soon... Yes I know 5.2 is a New Tech release & I'm contradicting myself by using a new tech version.

    Best suggestion. Go with what you're feeling safe on going with. If you know RedHat in & out & have a few bucks to spare I'd presonally suggest you get the Enterprise edition. it's much more secure & stable as well as you won't have to reboot as often for Kernel upgrades.

    Speaking of cpanel and kernel updates. Anyone looked at these scripts?

    /scripts/kernelcheck
    /scripts/quickkernel
