Upgrade from 7.3 to a higher version of Red-hat

Upgrade from 7.3 to a higher version of Red-hat

Hi all,

I have Red hat 7.3 on my system and would like to upgrade to a higher version preferably 9.0. I am wondering if I would lose my data if I do it. My hunch is that it should'nt. Can someone confirm this ?


RE: Upgrade from 7.3 to a higher version of Red-hat

I have updated from fedora 2 to fedora 3 and had no loss of data.  I believe fedora and red hat are basically the same operating system.  Just you get the tech support with red hat and fedora gets none.  Anyways you should be fine.  I believe it will ask you if you are upgrading during installation.
