    Where does it show that? Try a uname -a and post it.

    $ cat /etc/redhat-release

    I don't know what's going on.[/code]

    I'm not sure why it wouldn't update. If it bugs you, you can change /etc/redhat-release to read however you like.

    Have you tried using yum to update fedora or perhaps googling for the instructions on how to update fedora to core 2. I bet they are there

    I thought Fedora 2 Test 3 was the latest. Where do I get a final Fedora 2?
