    downloaded it earlier on

    was pretty surprised that on mirror speeds

    no where near as slow as when new redhat versions were released.

    they use to slow down every mirror.

    Was downloading fedora at over 100k/sec

    not tried it yet tho, but i will

    If you are using Fedora Core 1, you can just use yum to upgrade

    Backup your original yum.conf:
    Code:
    cp /etc/yum.conf /etc/yum.conf.original
    Then:
    Code:
    cat /etc/yum.conf.original | sed 's/$releasever/2/g' > /etc/yum.conf
    Lastly upgrade:
    Code:
    yum upgrade
    Sorry, I would not cover adding in mirrors for yum.conf and retries failure attempts here

    DO NOT DO Yum upgrade!
    It's far too risky....

    FC2 works like a charm I like the kernel 2.6

    Yeah, i'd strongly advise against doing a yum update on a production server, unless you absolutely know what you are doing. You can find more info on moving from FC1 to FC2 via yum here:

    Upgrading FC1 to FC2 on my desktop using yum upgrade is ok... whereby for production... will have to wait on more people getting it to test the upgrade using yum. Many sorry as I should make this clear that personally I have not try a single production server using yum to upgrade from FC1 to FC2.

    Yeap... it surprised me when after the upgrade and from grub menu I see two 2.6.x kernels... one is with smp and the other is without

    If you have a cpanel box, after running the yum update, run /scripts/fixeverything && /scripts/easyapache

    Interesting, I'm happy they got the 2.6 kernel?

    Can anybody tell me the main differences between Core1 and Core2? Core2 also performing better?

    I think I'm upgrading in 2 or 3 weeks if all seems to be okay.

    The following website gives a few details about main upgrades.

    http://fedora.redhat.com/participate/schedule/

    Ultimately, you're asking what the difference is between Distribution X v1 and v2. Unlike programs, distributions are just packages all tied together -- and so the update is essentially a group of newer packages.

    It's in production

    And I find that it's quicker than 2.4

    I don't know exactly, if you really want to know I can ask, as I'm on the FC mailing-lists. But since the coming out of FC2, I did not heared any problems relating to security.
    But There is already kernel 2.6.6 available for FC2, in case you are really scared
    And I did not hear any major bug as long as you do a fresh install

    It was called Kernel 2.5 when it was in Beta-status. First 2.6 release is about 3 months ago. But Fedora seems the first one to use it, so not sure if it's kinda secure.

    Actually Mandrake and SuSE where the first major vendors to release a distro on the 2.6 kernel. Debian Sarge however had 2.6 in for quite a while, I've been using it (Debian Sarge) and we also offer it to our customers (along with the over 14 ).
