Upgrading OS
 
Gonna ask a silly question here :-)

I have MDK 10.1 currently on my system. If I wanted to upgrade my system fo say LE2005, do I need to do a reinstall from stratch or is there an alternative way to do an upgrade in linux????

Thanks

You can usually upgrade from, say, Mandrake 9 to Mandrake 10 using the install program for that distro. You can't (as far as I know) 'upgrade' from, say Red Hat 7 to Slackware 10 without starting from scratch.

You can of course keep any partitions untouched, for example a home partition, when you move from one distro to another.
