	Another options is www.cheapbytes.com
	They sell distro's at 1.99 per CD Disk.

	The only question I have, is how do you get RedHat to actually upgrade?
I've tried it before, and for some reason, the upgrade/install process will
not recognize the disks as Linux and Linux Swap type of file systems.
Every time I've tried, It's told me they were Amoeba type.
	Not that I've ever had anything that I really needed to save on my system,
but it would be nice to know what I need to do, in case I want to actually
upgrade in the future.
