someone else suggested that Red Hat does support 'anaconda' upgrade from
RHEL 3 to RHEL 4 - that isn't my understanding
There is no price for upgrades. If you have an entitlement - it can be
used for any version of appropriate entitlement. I.E. If you have an
entitlement for RHEL 3 - ES
You can freely download the RHEL 4 ES and install that instead (or
upgrade) and use your entitlement for that. This is open source - they
don't sell the software - only the entitlements
