|i am trying to upgrade my system from rh8.0 to fedora. however when
|i install it tells me that my linuxconf is not what it should be, and
|exits abnormally. my /etc/linuxconf dir contains an "archive" directory.
|anybody run into this problem and know how to fix it?
|
|thanks,
|rory

I have had great luck with apt-get upgrades from older versions of Red
Hat.  Usually I have done this from RH9, but one server was upgraded
all the way from RH 7.2.

Install apt for your version of Redhat, then install synaptic.  Take
it slowly, one version upgrade at a time.  Apply all the updates, then
go to the next version.  If you don't rush it, things generally go
pretty well.
