I updated our RH6.2 box at work, which serves up our intranet site, 
with heavy use of PHP and MySQL. It's also the main NIS server, 
NTP, and is running sshd (openSSH).
I have seen no problems yet, and it's been running RH7.0 since 
less than 1 week after RH released it. I did turn off the new "redhat 
auto update" crap, and updated some new RPMs.
FWIW, I am not running RPMs of apache, mysql, php, openssh, 
etc. I have compiled myself, so I cannot vouche for the integrity of 
those RPMs, which are now included in RH7.0.
