: Hi, Nate,
: Most current top distros have "upgrade" install options.
: How about a little more info on your Linux box:
: What distribution/version have you installed, is it a laptop/desktop, do you have backup capability?
My box has Dual Pentium II 300s, 260 megs of Ram a 20 ide hard drive, and a SCSI burner running off an adaptec 1520b controller card. I am running RedHat 6.2, i have not been wanting to upgrade to the 7 because of all the problems that i hear it has. Also RedHat seems to be on the slugish side when keeping up to date with the latest X, kde and so on.
