Well it's official. here is the e-mail I received from Redhat:
Dear Red Hat Linux 7.1, 7.2, 7.3 and 8.0 customers,
In accordance with our errata support policy, the Red Hat Linux 7.1,
7.2, 7.3 and 8.0 distributions have now reached their errata maintenance
This means that we will no longer be producing security, bugfix, or
enhancement updates for these products. Red Hat Linux 9 reaches end
of life on April 30, 2004.
As our product family grows and expands, we want to help you
migrate to the Red Hat solution that is right for you. Whether that's
one of our Red Hat Enterprise Linux products or the Fedora Project, our
Red Hat Linux Migration Resource Center can help you find the Red Hat
solution best suited for your needs:
The errata support policy, as well as our current errata and advisories,
are available from:
--the Red Hat Network Team
Fortunately they have helped to give us Fedora Core 1 and it works exceptionally well.
