    Hi George, I just went from 6 to 7 the painless way. Today we have
HUGE hard drives. So what I did was load Fedora 7 in another partition.
I did a full new load not an upgrade.

    Once it is up you can put a line in your /etc/fstab file that makes
mounting your fc6 to your new f7 easy and just move the stuff you want
from 6 to 7. You get to pick and choose what you want on your new 7.
Here, the F7 installation dvd does not simply install anything, as the
F7 kernel is buggy:

Hi Paul, the 47 updates include another kernel. I hope this one will be a keeper. What did you find wrong with the older one?
Karl

Upps I will go to Bugzilla. Thanks
