Have had RH7.3 installed for about 20 hrs. Seems to be much better than Mdk 8.2 was. Also ran the update agent and it upgraded to a new kernel for my athlon. Flawless execution. So far it has been nothing but effortless. Now just have to figure out how to install my printer. Under mdk that was automatic.
I think that I will stay with this for awhile.
