The referenced URL given to you by Conor is no longer valid:  It seems
likely that the listadmin reindexed (and thus renumbered) the ILUG
mailing list archive at some point.  However, you may want to add to
your notes that Conor's reference is _probably_ to a brief thread
entitled "Upgrading from Red Hat 9 to Fedora Core 3", here: 

...and, in particular to four postings in that thread starting with
Padraig Brady's.
