RedHat 9 ---> Fedora ---> not happening :(


Hi,
I've been using RedHat for a couple of months and beginning to like it and now it's no longer supported. I've been thinking of upgrading to Fedora but how possible is it on a 56k modem

So I visited some computer outlets and all I saw on shelves was boxes of XPs. So has anyone successfully upgraded from RH9 to FC1 on a 56k dialup connection ?

TIA

I also have a 56k modem. I just buy my CDs from a discount CD store:

Check out the linux magazines. Linux User and Linux Format and also Linux Magazinen are always giving out distros for free on their CDs.
On the Christmas issue of Linux Format they gave away SUSE 9.0 and Slackware 9.0. Fedora came with Nov or Dec of Linux User and Red Hat 9 the same. Because there are so many linux distros, they are always coming out, and there's always the software as well. Much better than downloading linux from the net on a 56K. And you get some cool knowledge and other news with it, and all for a fiver.

Half an hour ago I've finished upgrading, if you can call it that; from RH9 to Mandrake 9.
I had a dual boot with XP and RH9 and now I've got XP and Mandrake 9.
All is fine.
