"When I heard about the beta release of the Red Hat 6.2, I was dying to try it out..."
"The first thing that I noticed which was changed from the recent Red Hat releases was that the installation CD-ROM could once again be used as a rescue disk..."
"The next thing I noticed as the installation proceeded was that 6.2beta has a new partitionless installation feature... instead of Linux residing within it's own partition schema outside of a Windows partition, it's installed into a single large file inside the Windows partition."
"Though I knew I would experience a decrease in system performance with a partitionless install, I was not adequately prepared for how drastic this decrease would be."
"My biggest complaint about in the install was that there is still no attempt at sound-card configuration."
"Another problem was that alternative media devices such as ZIP drives and the like are also still not even looked for during installation."
"KDE setup seems to be a continuing problem with Red Hat."
"Ultimately 6.2beta's improvements over 6.1 seem largely to be in the form of bells and whistles."
