Question How do I change the ATI Radeon driver that comes on FC3 CD#1 to the latest version?


What are the steps to create a new iso version of a FC3 CD #1 complete with all the new dependencies and support files plus the new ATI driver?


Why? So I don't have to continually get on the Internet for other systems I have here and of course in the event that I have to reinstall this system it would be great if I had a updated FC3 CD#1.

The FC download iso's don't change , all the new updates are downloaded and installed after

Yes I know this. What I meant though is this, do you or anyone else know how to replace every file that is an updated version including the kernel and video driver with the latest and then make new iso's personally so in the event that I have to reinstall I don't have to waste my time on the Internet, etc.

And the main reason I ask mister LOL is because I have a 56k modem!

Maybe you should really take a hard look at what I typed previously.

And how I got these iso's is by having someone in another state download and burn them for me plus every distro that's listed on my profile. Why? Because where I live there is no such thing as broadband.

(ask a simple question, get an idiot observation...)

Rather than going through this, have you explored options like partimage? You can install the system upgrade everything then archive the partition(s) say to a networked storage machine. If you need to reinstall, simply restore the pristine partition(s) to the drive.

http://www.partimage.org/

It also lists live cds it comes with, very helpful to backup your current system.
