I receive various distro disks regularly from my subscription to LINUX magazine. My Question is this: I run Suse 9.3 currently and will certainly receive a DVD in the near future with Suse 10.x on it. These disks are coded to auto install. Can I just plunk the 10.x disk in the drive and update? Will the disk know to write over/replace the existing kernel? Or will I end up with dueling kernels? What about the tons of software on this new disk, such as Kde-new version, will the Yast note the disk so as to permit selective updating, or replaceing old with new ? Does anyone do this on a routine basis who would share some tips and experiences with me?
I appreciate any help. BTW, though I'm a newbie and probably will remain so, I figure that though I don't understand the majority of what I read in the magazine, reading it can't hurt and it's one way to support the movement.
