    I think, the upgrade is still a kind of science-fiction for Linux. I've tried to do some simple program upgrades and It caused my system to crash, or some applications not to work. I can't recommend you to upgrade. I don't like at all, the way they allways use newer and newer libc6 libraries without compatibility for the older versions. I think that would be a pure question of naming conventions of the functions within the libraries. Of course that would lead to an increased size of RPM packages, but that would affect only the vital libraries. Now, when I want to use some never version of Gimp for instance, If I want everything to go O.K I must completelly move to Mandriva 2008. That's a pity!
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:
