Thanks in advance.

It took me a little over 3 days to upgrade gnome2.2 to 2.4 on Red Hat 9.0 about a month ago and vowed I would never go through that again. If you are brave you can have a look at www.gnome.org for what you will need.

Yep, about a week after I finally got gnome2.4 up and running they released Fedora Core and I quickly jumped on that bandwagon and never looked back.

it would be great if gnome wasnt so deeply combined with linux, so you could rpm -e it like you would fluxbox or iceWM
