I recently installed Red hat from CD's provided by Infomagic.  The code
is dated December '96.  I have X working and can dial into the
internet.  I want to upgrade everything possible to the latest
versions.  Do I merely need to download all the .rpm files found in the
/redhat/current/i386 directory and run rpm on them?  What sequence
should be followed (kernal 1st, or libraries, etc...)?  A simple script
would be most usefull.

RedHat 4.x has a nice installation interface. One of the first dialog boxes you get to answer is if you want to do a full installation or an upgrade from an existing version of RedHat. I'm sure you can do a more manual RPM install as well.
