FC3 upgrade question


I have fedora core 1, but would like to upgrade to fc3.....well, because I have the GRUB boot loader, it no longer boots from disk. How can I load the install disk from boot/grub/ or from FC1? Will my FC1 programs work when i upgrade to FC3?

Thanks!! You guys/girls rule!!!

Your apps should be upgraded to the latest versions, but I am not sure if this is done automatically, for all packages, so you may have to make sure they are selected for install just in case.

Did you burn the isos as cd images or did you just copy them as they were?

Not all BIOS will check the CD device for bootable media before starting up, go into BIOS as the computer starts (F12 or DEL or something, hit it like a crazy man as it starts up :P) look for a section to change the boot up device order and put your CD drive at the top.
