Wink updating redhat

Hi all,

I am new to linux and I was wondering what do I need if I want to upgrade my redhat 7.0 to 7.3.

- What file do I need to download ?
- Should I download the full version ?
- Is it possible to upgrade directly to 7.3 ?
- Is it worthy to do it ?

Thanks for your answers...

Head to RH website and you can get all the info there, I am not trying to be rude BTW, it is all there - mirrors to downloads, instructions, and so forth start from there.

That's quite a big a jump you know. I'd say you upgrade the basics: kernel, security patches, etc. for your release 7.0.

First thing you may want to do is kernel.

Scroll to "Red Hat Linux 7.0 i386" and get 5 files

*headers*, *source*, *kernel*, *ibc*, *pcmcia*

then do
