Fedora-16>>Fedora-18 upgrade: CAN I just format & install F-18?
I have Fedora-16 on my desktop
I POSSESS the Fedora-18 OS install disk from OSdisc.com (plus all the plugin disks)
Recommended procedure asks that I upgrade F-16 to F-17 before doing a F-18 upgrade/install.
This procedure seems klutzy. I can do it but............Here's My Question:::::
WOULD it be equally intelligent......to do a Drive FORMAT under F-16.......and then BOOT to my DVD-drive with the F-18 install disk present?
Have I posted in the wrong forum?
I don't plan to have two OS's on this machine.
If Fedora-18 upgrades are sensitive to the existence of prior versions, wouldn't it be cleanest-of-all to fdisk and start fresh?
