Oh, Fred,
	make sure you are using disk labels before you upgrade so that F7 can
find your installation.  It will change from IDE drives to SCSI drives.
 You can then remove the labels once you figure out what your new disk
naming structure is.
	Let me know how you make out.  I have to upgrade this desktop from
FC5->F7 myself in the next few weeks.  B^)
