I haven't done a RedHat upgrade in quite some time. I have been using
Debian for the past couple years which an upgrade is just an apt-get
away. Probably for such a large jump I would back up your important
files and do a fresh install. There are many new features in RH 7.2, such
as ext2, 2.4 kernel, ipchains config during the install, the fancy 
graphical instaler, and the new Gnome, Ximain is very nice too. 
I have installed it on my laptop to fiddle with and also on a new DNS 
server and email server back up at work.

I still prefer Debain, but companies like the RedHat name. 8)
