An upgrade or a fresh install?
I moved from rh9 to fedora, actually changed machine three times in a
month, the kids were messing with my uptime. Gotta beat microsoft :--)
Since there are a lot of differences between rh7.1 and fedora, gcc
different, likely differences in sendmail & bind - but not sure ,
definitely differences in apache, fedora uses apache2.
1. setup a spare box,
2. tar up all your configs,
3. install fedora
4. restore the configs & try to restart the "server".
5. See what runs and what fails.
If all goes well, great.
Otherwise keep 7.1 running, install fedora on a spare box and make a
gentle move. Thats what I did at home so as not to miss any mails.
Once I had fedora all patched and duplicate services running, I simply had
to change my routers config to point to the fedora box instead of the rh9
one, minimim "outage".
