"This is not a full review. This is a drive-by review, an "install and run" look at Red Hat Linux 6.2 Deluxe. I am, however, working with Rawn Shah, our reviews editor, on a full review of this and other major distributions in the coming months. So if you're after full reviews, they will come."

"Red Hat has improved its graphical installer in 6.2 to the point that I actually used it to do the install. Twice, as a matter of fact. And I'm getting to be an old hand at wiping out my desktop installation and installing a new distribution. I had only been running Corel Linux on the machine for a week or two when I received an early copy of RH 6.2. To speed and ease the process, I simply tarred the contents of my home directory and copied it to another partition. Among other things, my home directory contains a couple of years' worth of email, so it is a sizable archive."
