I'm guessing you're gonna be grabbing 8.0?

No real gotchas if you're doing a fresh install, I had a few hiccups
when I did an upgrade from 7.3, but that was mainly to do with some
custom packages I installed myself that it didn't pick up.

One thing you may need to know is that by default RH8.0 comes with
Apache2.0. I haven't found any major problems running it, but if it's
not to your liking then you can grab Apache1.3 RPMs from a few of the
contribution sites.

If you're not in a hurry though, it might be worth waiting for the next
version (Pheobe) to be released. Beta testing is going well and the
rumour mill is mentioning an April release. But you know what rumour
mills are like.

Version: GnuPG v1.2.0 (GNU/Linux)
