Upgrading distribution
 
A new version of my distro has just been released (CentOS, a rebuild of RedHat EL). Can I upgrade this one without losing settings, etc? Do I just reinstall over the top or are there preparations? Do I have to reformat and reinstall everything?

Any help or links to tutorials much appreciated,

should work
 
I've only upgraded redhat and fedora core with new releases and so far there has been an option to upgrade while leaving all critical data intact...you could just start the upgrade and reboot before actually writing to the drive if there is no option for keeping the data....
As always, BACK UP your data in case anything goes wrong.
