 Redhat upgrades, 5.0 - 5.1
I'm new to Linux, and Redhat 5.0 is my first installation. When 5.1 was
released, I was interested in upgrading. The documents on Redhat's Web site
say that Redhat offers easy upgrade from one version to the next without
wiping the drive and reinstalling, all via their package system I believe.

What is omitted from their site however, is any instructions on how to do
this. I've looked around a lot and found nothing. I know how to install
packages with rpm, but is there a scheme for doing a 'full' upgrade without
tracking down hundreds of individual packages?

Thanks for any info you can provide.

serious bugs with Redhat 5.1.

Start the 5.1 install just like you did with 5.0 -- you'll be prompted for
"install" or "upgrade".

Get the RedHat 5.1 CD (or download it all from the net), boot from the
5.1 boot-floppy, and select "Upgrade" instead of "Install".
