If I want to backup my Evolution 1.0.8 files and my Mozilla 1.3a in
RedHat 8.0, which files do I burn to a cd? I'm migrating to RedHat 9 and must redo my /boot as I've set it up as too small a partition, 288.6 MB, with my /tmp as way too large, 4.5G.
Thanks, Dirk

The evolution folder, perhaps:


And the mozilla hidden folder, perhaps:


Good luck.

Since it looks like you did partitions, if /home is a separate partition, you can install RedHat 9 and leave the /home partition unformatted to return it to the way it was. I don't like the feeling of just upgrading everything because I may have accumulated things I didn't want .. so when I went from 8.1 to 9.0, I formatted all partitions except for the /home one .. so when I fired up the new applications, all my preferences were still there.

Are you kidding me? 288.6 MB is too small for a /boot partition? You should never need more than 50MB. Right now I have 9 different kernels, and a whole pile of different initrd's,'s, and so forth, plus my bootloader files and it is only 35MB.
