Upgrading from RedHat 7.2 to 7.3 ... what's the best approach?

I'm a little hesitant about screwing around with my redhat 7.2 install as I have it working properly...but if I decide to upgrade, what should I do? After googling around, I have found that fewer problems seem to occur when upgrading from a cd (rather than up2date)...is this accurate.

If anyone has some tips/gotchas, I would be most appreciative!

This is very accurate,

there are no major differences between rh72 and rh73
i did that on a few systems and everything came back up
without a single problem

so get the cd, and go for it, a full backup before doing
anything like that is always in order just in case

and while your at it move to 8.0

(unless you have a reason not to)

Now despie naccad's success I would always backup anything important, as I have upgraded machines via CD and had various problems, then again the vast majority went fine.

Hi!

I went from rh74->rh73->rh8 and had no problems at all.

I had to hack the httpd.conf abit when moving from 73->8 since 8 uses apache2.
