I dunno but it looks like maybe they are reserving a spot for it and once it becomes available you won't get that 550 Can't Open the file. I don't think it's been released as of yet.

I'm pulling down the DVD version now from an FTP server in the states. Hopefully it's not a TEST!

I've got it coming down my skinny 256k pipe right now. It takes about 6-7 hours per CD so I'll probably have it up and running tomorrow.

PS it's not a test. The test releases have fedora corex testx. Plus according to the schedule Fedora Core 3 is supposed to be released today

Is that 256KB or 256Kb?? Because I have the dvd iso coming in right now on my 1.5Mb DSL line that I get around 165KB down, and it tells me right now at 154KB time remaining 4 hours 38 min. Man I hope this release is as good as it's supposed to be. I'm also snagging Mandrake 10.1final as well so I'll have lots of choices

Hey guys, there's few tricks about how should I update my FC 2 to FC3??
Does it work with YUM?

Or would it be wiser to start with clean installation?
It may take a while with 256Kb broadband... ??

i want to upgrade from fc2 to fc3 with yum.
i changed yum.conf, did a "yum update yum", and "yum check-update" shows me a long list with available packages.
but "yum update" doesn't do anything.
anyone can help me?

Shouldn't you do 'yum upgrade' instead? BTW, don't you need to update the fedora-release package too? Just curious .. I'll go for the safest way .. ISO.
