My guess is lots of people have done it this way (RedHat).
Just try to follow the directions at redhat.
I personally applied the 3.0.3 CD updates first then applied
the 2.0 kernel stuff. One problem I noticed was that all
the files at the redhat ftp site were not documented in the
directions, as I recall. Maybe it's changed by now? At
least it seemed to work well in spite of myself!
I used command line rpm to update. I really screwed myself
once with their X (GUI based) package tool. Probably my own
ignorance, but now I'm gun shy and it'll be along time before
I try it again. It didn't remove the old version of the
package icon when the updated package was applied, so I must
have deleted the new package trying to remove the old icon.
Wrong thing to do. Almost sounds like a MS story, hey?
I hate GUIs... Other than that, I like RedHAt alot!
