Default "Enterprise" Linux?

So CentOS "Enterprise" Linux has been released:

Upgrading from CentOS-4 or CentOS-5:

We recommend everyone run through a reinstall rather than attempt an
inplace upgrade from CentOS-4 or CentOS-5
The text installer has limited capabilities compared to the GUI installer. Most notably there is no support for configuring partition layout, storage methods or package selection.
The i386 DVD is just a bit too large to fit on normal single layer DVD+R media. It can be burnt succesfully on DVD-R.
So how exactly am I to upgrade my CentOS 5.6 VPS? With no GUI access? An upgrade is apparently not supported and I don't have a GUI so I can't do a decent reinstall. And ff I'd have physical access I'd need to search for a rare DVD-R which almost no one uses anymore ...

If this is Enterprise class quality then I'd rather be using something else ....


UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
