    Yes, I would like to upgrade my OS to Redhat 9.

    The only problem, I don't know how to. Also, is it safe enough? I am no expert at this either.

    Please suggest the easiest way to upgrade.

    Thanks a lot :)

    Thanks... But that seems to be ultra-complicated. I am sure there must be something easier? It's 4 months old, and I believe there must be something easier out there.

    As a matter of fact, I found this: http://forum.rackshack.net/showthread.php?threadid=29540

    It is 10 times shorter than the one 3w mentioned. Will this work too?

    Alright, I am starting, but I am a bit unsure about this bit:

    Exactly what should I do?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    pico /etc/apt/sources.list

    # Within sources.list, you'll see that the 7.3 lines are
    # uncommented. Comment them out with # symbols. Then go
    # to the 9.0 section and uncomment them.
    # Now you can update your server to 9.0

    I don't think its possible to up direct from 7.3 to 9. Don't you have to go 7.3 > 8 > 9 ?

    I am hesitant to upgrade from 7.3. What are the benefits of upgrading?

    Sorry, I am not too familiar with this... What exactly should I do? Don't say uncomment or comment, cus I simply don't know what they, mean, sorry.

    Thanks. :)

    Alright, I have fallen upon 2 unmet dependencies:

    mod_dav: PreDepends: webserver
    mod_ssl: Depends: webserver

    I have used `apt-get -f install'. But I still have those two. What can I do now?

    If all goes well, you don't even have to run upcp.

    7.3 EOL = December 31, 2003
    9.0 EOL = April 30, 2004

    That is 4 extra months of RHN support

    What's 8.0?

    I prefer it over 9 and 7.3.

    mod_dav: PreDepends: webserver

    postgresql: Obsoletes: postgresql-perl but 7.2.4-5.73 is installed
