It seemed to me that April was the last month where support would be available for RedHat Linux 9 ( support for previous versions having been dropped since last year I believe ). If upon installing RedHat 9, I create a new account for RedHat network, I can still get updates via up2date ( if the account type is set to "demo" ). I'm not complaining or anything as I find up2date to be a very usefull tool & the longer I can get it to work the better.:grinthumb Am I missing something here ? I would've guessed that dropping for RedHat Linux support meant that no newer custom packages from RedHat would be available for RHL users who do not pay a subscription.
