Thanks for the information about that. Did the RHL -> RHEL transition go
smoothly, in your opinion?
Can you tell me if the RHEL system file locations are the same or similar to
what they were in RHL - i.e. /etc, /etc/sysconfig, /etc/rc.d, etc.? I have
all locally-modified files from /etc and other locations under version
control, so I'm hoping that once I do the fresh install of RHEL, install the
databases and client files, I can just roll out my modified system files and
be up and running fairly quickly.

with Fedora Core 1, which does update (as opposed to reinstall) from Red
