Server OS


Hi
I have just rented a server running Red Hat 7.3, I have been advised to update the kernel (by the people I rent the server from) because it fails every now and again. Another person has told me to swap to Debian. What I want to know is how to go about this swap, how do I get Debian to my machine and then how do I install it to replace Red Hat.
Can anyone help?
Thanks,
Scott

how do you get debian to your machine? pick it up... carry it over to the drive ... if you mean where do you get it from.. http://linuxiso.org

you install it by using the installer, and reading the installation guide, that's what it's there for.

Thanks, I have no idea where my machine physically is. How do I download files to it from wherever. I know how I upload files directly from my desktop but that means getting it to my desktop then uploading it which will take ages.
thanks
Scott

Ah. So that is why I could not find out how to do it.
Thanks,
