I assume this is a release version you have and not a beta? www.redhat.com
says that 6.2 for Intel is due on April 10th; I'm not sure if this refers to
boxes or to availability via FTP.
If your server is functioning perfectly well, there is almost certainly no
need to upgrade the Linux installation you already have, unless it is very
old and you are sure that it will be beneficial to do so.
Components such as Samba, FTP and HTTP servers and even the kernel can be
changed without disturbing the rest of the OS one jot.
I was running RedHat 4.1 from late 1997 until Christmas 1999. I manually
upgraded all the way, even doing the jump from libc 5 to glibc 2. I finally
decided that I had accumulated enough cruft and installaed Mandrake 6.1,
which will probably do me for another couple of years, unless I decide to
jump to Debian 2.2 when it is released.
