Update RH9

I downloaded the 3 CDs for redhat9.

1) What is the differences between shrike-i386-disc1.iso and shrike-SRPMS-disc1.iso?

2) Is there an easy way to update RH9 other than the web update thing that makes you register? If i register...does it make me pay?

3)I read the kernel update post...but it's a little there a newer post about updating RH9? Even better, is there a really easy way to update the kernel?

1. don't know
2. don't know but inmy case, I ditched RH and went with another distro that doesn't make me register.
"yes" for the 2nd PC on. The 1st PC is free as far as I know.
3. I think you can download kernel source from any major FTP servers...

SRPMS-disc1.iso are the source files, you want the shrike-i386-disc1.iso
You can always use "apt" to download and update your apps.

fizazz88, I know you are trying to help, but some of your answers are less than helpfull. Please do not try to bump up your post count.
