In the menu is a option called computer clicking on one off the storage media it ask for root password and then you can access the storage media.

OR did you mean something else ?

Well maybe reading in the release notes , will help you how to decide
Most ditros give the option to upgrade.
AS I do not like to upgrade , I always do a fresh install and keep the old version for a sometime, until I am satisfy with the
new one.


all the best

i think in KDE if you use Konqueror, you can do this. but yes, i think there is no automounting! (

Well if you go for a clean install , you have to reinstall every thing
As far as possible I use ADD/Remove Software
But if you go for a upgrade only chances will be reinstalled

Sounds like a corrupted DVD image.
Did you do a media check on the downloaded DVD ?
Also, you could try and see what sysimage.cfg contains and try to fix it somehow.
I suggest Ubuntu if you're new to Linux and compiling stuff and installing it after (apt is superior compared to yum from my point of view).
