I just wanted to add (vent about RedHat really), that RedHat does have
an easy way to upgrade. The RedHat network I maintain at school was just
upgraded to 5.1 from 5.0 and the guy had to download each package
individually and manually install them.

This makes me so much happier that I use Debian at home. God Bless
dselect, even if it is harder to use than RedHat's package manager.
