My real question, is why upgrade?  Yes, I know that RedHat is doing
funny things lately, but I'm typing this from a RedHat 6.2 box.  A
coworker has his workstation running RH 6.0.  These machines are only
rebooted because of power problems.

I only upgrade servers when there is a new feature or upper limit that
has been removed from my current release.  I upgrade my personal and
test boxes when I have time so I can stay current.  Personally, I was
not real happy with RH8, not sure about RH9.  I've heard bad stuff about
